    now i think about it
    when i was jlr . rac we were isued
    green plastic nasty
    some brown enamel and some wight enamel mugs
    i at that time took no notice of dates on the nugs
    that was 1975
    so brown,, wite and green pastic were being issued at the ame time
    i do wish id taken more notice of dates
    it was not unusual for us young soldiers to be isuede war time stuff
    IE 37 patern webing that we had to black and polish to a high astandard
    so some times the things we see as ww2 ,,, mabe ,but can have been re issued to soldiers in training
    cheers ian
    allso the exsamles in the first post ,,are 1 the wrong colour ,2 the wrong shape

    sorry JLR,,RAC ,,,means juniour leaders , regement

    we were issued with battle dress ,, then the BD blouse was repleced with the 66 pattern DPM jacket
    but we cept the battle dress trousers
    then they were replaced by the lightwieght trousers
    as far as MUGS go ,,we all did our best to get the 44 pattern alloy mugs
    cos we could cook in them
    in my day there were thousands of 44 mugs available
    cheers ian

    It's nice to see them in color instead of B&W. I always thought they were more reddish. Off to the auctions

    im looking for a mug for my collection found this one at 75. Is this the going rate for wartime issue? It seems expensive or is just like the wartime toothbrushes you have to pay for them
