    Hi, this is a WW2 British Army "Windproof" camo smock.

    It is not a special Airborne / Paratroop item. But they were worn by some special forces units such as the SAS etc. You will always see them sold as this

    But they were far more commonly worn by the regular Infantry and even by women soldiers of the ATS by the winter of 1944.

    It is a nice item and they are popular with collectors.

    Cheers, Ade.
