    Default Smock Denison in Far East Campaign?

    Can anybody give me information about this Smock Denison? It's looks like the British one, but it's using button instead of zipper

    It's being used in Far East by the Netherlands post-war period (probably around '46-'49). Sorry if I made a mistake

    These Denisons with buttons are Belgian issue.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, do you have a picture of it? I've searched on google, but the results are showing up the '56 Belgian smock, while the smock they used is supposed to date before 1949

    As Ade posted, post war Belgian issue.

    I'm not so sure (but willing to be corrected). I have a post war Belgian smock and my differs in a couple of ways. Mine has button holes (not loops) and the colours show a lot more green and lighter in colour. The smock shown here would appear to be a British one with a zip altered to buttons - I will take some pictures of mine to show the difference

    Early button version in this thread, they are rare so hard to find images of them.


    Para smock 1950s

    These smocks are just the same as the wartime British ones, with the exception of the collar closure.

    This is my Belgian smock - unfortunately it is not easy to get to at the moment (and is on a mannequin) so I have provided images of the neck closure - note the intentionally made button holes not loops. Mine is very similar to the faded one shown on post #16 on the link Jerry added
