    Excellent comparison shot James, it is interesting ( as a camo collector) that colours changed through the different versions,the second versions light green being more mustard than the first version for example..nice mate!

    i agree opex ,the first design light green is almost a lime colour and it gradually darkened as it evolved ,thanks for looking your thoughts are always welcome pal

    hi jake ,the first pattern was from 1956 through till the mid 1970's after that the second pattern followed untill the late 1980's and the third pattern was from the late 1990's onwards including a desert pattern jigsaw and in between the belgiums trialed there own version of the german bundeswehr flecktarn style

    The first time i saw the jigsaw camo in the flesh was in a little village called Otterburn up in the Northumberland national park, it was back in the late 90s when i used to do firework displays with my mate, we had set up the display in the village when about 20 Belgian squaddies wandered in, i tried buying a spare pair of pants from them but they were having none of it!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks James the middle one seems to be by far the most common I see displayed on various m71 french and german helmets...........Jake.
