Aussie Shirt & Trousers Vietnam
Article about: G'day all, Here's my Aussie VN set, still need to find the boots and bush hat.
As I mentioned on the Modern Cam thread, the Smock Tropical was utterly useless and known to troops as the Smock Psychological as that was all the weather proofing it gave-the water bladder is also a dud as any water stored in it for more than 30 secs becomes undrinkable due to the plasticy taste.
I can agree on the bladder as I've used it before- it's based on a US WW2 model
The bush hat version that goes with the smock-not sure how rare it is, but before buying this one 3 years ago, I can't remember seeing another example.
Rare hat , never seen one before.
Thanks for sharing
