    Sparse ddpm shirt on ebay now, item 161984905769 if anybody wants one. It's not mine and I don't know the seller but 15 all in doesn't seem too outrageous.

    Just to keep things going, here's a true "Falklands parka" c. 1980, with early liner. Early ones are still around but less often than before, and early liners have never been easy to find. All the Bernard Uniform ones seem to be post-1982 replacements.

    A pair of 70s SAS windproof trousers I found not long ago. Only a small Size 1, but these are extremely scarce in any size.

    A 1970s sniper smock. The A/78 contract series gave way to the CT series in 1978 or 79. This smock has had the sling hooks removed, a common mod as they tended to catch on things. Sniper smocks and "Falklands" parkas were only ever produced in metric sizes except for a few trials pieces.

    Cheers CBH, I'd like to see the cap and hat. Although it wasn't THAT many years ago, provenanced Falklands groups are pretty rare. Most of the RM and Para windproofs must have been worn out by the end of the campaign and binned on the way home.

    Figured to post new pics of my USMC one (going back to the first pic by The Great Tasmanian Dave)
    Haven't played with this in years! Great camo but in my opinion not as good as GB DPM

    Had this one for a really long time - my old issued Cookson & Clegg LTD '82 I guess?

    That's not a style of contract number I recognise, is it Australian Army issue?

    I wonder how many people still have their old original combat smock!
