    Default post war sniper smock for identification please

    please see the attached photos. The smock or jacket has padded elbows which leads me to believe it is for sniper use. The label is washed out sadly, but it has internal draw strings, an outside rear pocket with zip marked FERNS. The lower side pockets have elasticated tops. I assume it to be post war British as it came with post war camouflaged smocks.

    any thoughts on what it might be?

    many thanks, Dave

    Looks like a Rhodesian camo jacket to me but I may be wrong

    If you can positively identify it as Rhodesian, it would be a rare and expense smock.

    A few standard rhodi smocks on ebay recently, not that expensive or perhaps not that rare.
