    Come on, I know somebody knows something. At least tell me if it's actually Irish or not!

    Yes it's Irish army. The paint colour is rather unique. They actually painted vehicles and aircraft in that colour too. It's quite effective in the Irish countryside.

    The badge is for the Southern Command/1st Brigade although it's missing it's symbol which I think is a pike head. These were in use right up into the eighties by the reservists although the last repaint was probably back in the sixties. I have one myself in Eastern command colours and I wore one as a reservist myself. Should have nicked it when I had a chance.
