DPM covered hood for Sateen Combat Smock

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Recently acquired this. It’s a 1953 dated hood for the sateen combat smock, but with some DPM material stitched over the top. The DPM is a waterproof nylon (?) material, not sateen or polycotton. The hood appears to be unissued and the stitching has been done very neatly.

Has anyone seen another like it? Presumably it was intended to be used with a DPM P60 smock or a P68 smock. My initial guess is that it’s some sort of commercial conversion using old surplus hoods.

Cheers,

Mark

Mark, I first saw one of these at Silverman's back in the late-1970's.....at the time you couldn't get DPM clothing via surplus so I believe that Silverman's actually produced these themselves using the old green hoods.........
