    Hello,

    You have a great handle on the uniform and insignia. The uniform was in service for quite some time because of operations in that theater. A bush hat or patrol cap would be nice. These uniforms also had nametapes, service tape sleeve insignia and qualification patches in O.D. when in Army use!! There is a nice setup at our local museum from a local vet. maybe I can get down there in the next few days and get some pictures for you. I have a couple of totes of this stuff in the basement to include night time camo parka and trousers.

    Great stuff there mate i really like the chocolate chip camo and those 83 dated pants must be quite rare, even the later dated stuff is getting harder to get hold of, i've been looking for pants sized Large/Regular and they can be found but at quite a hefty price for something so modern!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hello,

    The hood for the protective mask needs to be untied and lowered below the voicemitter and drinking tube and retied. Does your E-tool have a date and manufacturer on it?
