    ive always had an interest in czech militaria and it amazes me how over time bits and pieces build up ,my humble collection is all post ww2 items really, possibly my soviet /czech re-issue ssh 40 might just qualify as ww2 period ,so ill start with it ,im hoping somebody can help in some way on dating it ,ill provide a number stamp on the rear skirt 1 3454 the liner looks to be dated 1969 the cover is the jacket hood and it also has a hbt style material foliage band my Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collection

    forgot to mention these dust goggles ,i reckon they are a more modern issue and have seen referance pictures of czechoslovakian chemical units using them during the first gulf war ,they are real comfy to wear due to the sponge edge the also have a sun shield over the top very much like the bundeswehr goggle of that time period ,my Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collectionmy Czechoslovakian collection
