    A very nice tunic these are quite desirable the colors are nice and crisp and show little fading and as previously mentioned was the for runner of the Bundesgrenzschutz Sumpftarn pattern that first seen use from the late 1950's which there are three post war variations of this pattern production stopped in 1976.

    Thank you Mark. I must admit I feel somewhat dumb being a Texan and not already knowing this; us Texans love our camo! However, now that I know the name and own this, I've spent the last few hours searching the Internet. Shockingly, at least to me, I found plenty of information, and with the help of my fellow forum members, I am now armed with some knowledge.
    I also got a WWII USMC sniper camo cover with the mosquito net for a M1 in mint plus condition. It too is not a item I'd usually buy, but it is quite cool looking for lack of better words, and the price was right as well.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Thanks Gunny and Paul. I've been studying up on these, and of course, now, I've become very intrigued by them. It is also undoubtably a combat used jacket, it even has pit stains, lol.

    Funny enough, I purchased this from the same man in the link below. I was driving down to Galveston for personal reasons, and since the guy was so kind the prior visit, besides his pricing, decided to stop and say hello. Looking around, again, everything was a few hundred dollars over market value. However, he wasn't sure on this item, and wanted to flip it ASAP it seemed. Sounded kind of fishy to me, but considering the wear, material, and construction were right on, IMO, I figured I'd research it, at minimum to help out a good guy. Needless to say, it's two days later and it's now in my collection; thank you all for your kind assistance.
    I also purchased a camo mosquito net, but I'll post that elsewhere.

    Here's the link to his other item I found first;

    Hello, there is various paterns of this camo and I think it's will be difficult to have the SAME for the pants.
    I bought the jacket and trousers to Tarnmilitaria, now it's hard to find the gloves and hood.

    That's no problem as I'm not really a "full display" kind of guy, just tunic/jacket, belt, medals...basically the top portion only. Also, if the link is any indenification of the value I got a steal as I paid a little over 250USD for both items.
