10 Good
  1. Does anyone know who made the 'ripple print' grips used in RAF Aircraft?, also how were they made?, what was used to make the surface?. Any help would be greatful.
  2. I seen the description, but thought it may have been made up to sell on the website.
  3. Seen in the Museo de la Brigada de Fusileros Paracaidistas
  4. Does anyone know if boot sole tread patterns were given designations by the MOD?, also which contractors made them? It would have been better if the MOD still kept the 'DMS' or 'BCH' type treads on assault boots or made a new version of it.
  5. Has anyone here seen these boots before?, if anything its what the ammo boots should have been. http://www.ew-trading.com/shop/british-boots-c-1_5_16/northern-ireland-patrol-boot-p-363
  6. Has anyone ever used different colours together of blanco to make camouflage on webbing etc?
  7. Has the British ever came up with the idea of DPM camo berets?. I know that some countries issue camo berets to the likes of Special Forces. The South African 32 Buffalo Battalion wore camo berets in the border war. Myself, the idea of camo berets is taking things too far lol Didnt the British have somthing similar called the General Service Cap but in khaki?
  8. They were some of the best DPM variants.
  9. Here is a thread about Paratrooper Smocks of the world if anyone here is up for discussing about. If anyone here finds any unusual or foreign variants, post here.
  10. Why do Para Smocks retain the knitted cuffs?, it would probably be better off with the likes of elasticated/velcro/press stud or ''ninja'' type thumb holes as they wont get sweaty, take ages to dry and would be more hard wearing.
  11. Has there ever been a CS95 version of the Para Smock?, Would it have just been a CS95 jacket but with press studs/jump flap and velcro/press stud/elasticated cuffs?.
  12. Has there ever been any idea to issue Para trousers? (IE Denison/DPM trousers with press stud pockets?), I dont mean the windproof camo trousers but somthing that would have matched the Denison smock as OG lightweight trousers would have stood out in some conditions.
  13. Has there ever been British Army Para boots? (IE: Ammo/DMS boots with higher legs). Its just that other countries came up with Paratrooper boots during WW2.
  14. Although Argentina was the first country on the continent of South America to establish a Paratrooper force, Peru was the first to see action in the 1941 Ecuador-Peru conflict. http://www.oocities.org/es/conflictoperuecuador1941/fap-1941.html
  15. From ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Paratrooper-JUMP-SMOCK-NEW-ZEALAND-Army-Camouflage-NZDF-DPM-Camo-Like-DENISON-/121159200119?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c35a6ad77
