  1. OH My Gosh, I said I'd do some charity work, that requires a smart DPM Uniform, Dammit, I can't pair up anything in my DPM collection of Jackets and trousers that match exactly! lol S'pose it's authentic though, none of my ( or anyone elses) issued T.A. gear matched, see my passing out parade photo, no one's combats matched! Note: 5 variations of DPM colours on view, 84 and 68 and probably other jackets, why was it called "Uniform" again? we were supposed to wear the nylon belts too but half of us were never issued them. (I'm bottom far right with the closed eyes!) the shorter corpral was always messing around with us hence his beret is on backwards!
  2. The sort of day I should spend on my thousand and one projects, and here I am, glued to my computer. And joining the group. My current vehicles included a very original, VERY early, Land Rover Lightweight, one of Contract No 8788, 72FG44. It was built on 11th November 1968, issued on 6th January 1969 to 41 Cdo Royal Marines, and spent its service with 41, on commando carriers and then in Belfast when it all kicked off in September 1969. 41 Cdo was the Spearhead Battalion at the time. The vehicle ended its service in Malta, from where it visited Cyprus and possibly Libya. I also have two complete and two disassebled Bombardier (Can-Am) motorcycles, a Mk 1 of 1978 issued to 22 SAS (yes, really, and I have the documentary proof) and a 1980 Mk2 issued to RAF. The ones in parts included a Mk2 issued to 7RHA, and another whose history I haven't yet researched. I also have a disassembled Sankey Mk2 trailer, ex RAF, probably one of the small number transferred to the Army, according to the encyclopaedic John Mastrangello. The word 'disassembled' occurs far too often, I know - I'm a disassembled sort of person. I also collect 1958 Pattern webbing and British Army uniforms from 1950 on, especially 1960s and now early desert DPM kit. And yes, I do have other interests, though not for this forum.
  3. Im just wondering how many different types there are?And what sort of era they were used. So far i have: S95 in tropical and temperate.Ive heard some of this stuff called 'teabag' material??Whats that? S95 in ripstop material. Some of this gear has normal buttons, some the type on tapes...Are the sewn buttons earlier? Desert windproofs(is there a jacket?) and gortex. Thanks:-D
