    Identifying uniform from some Jamaica Defence Force photos

    Post by Thibir on Tue Aug 18, 2015 7:25 am

    Recently I got into thinking which interesting and unique loadout I will complete next and stumbled across Jamaican involvement in Operation Urgent Fury. However I was not able to get much info about used gear except they used American Panama boots, British L1A1 and pattern 58 webbing. I wasn´t able to google any images stating specifically that it is a picture of JDF personnel, just a members of Eastern Caribbean Defense Force. But I am quite sure that these guys are Jamaican. Can anybody identify the combat uniform they are wearing?




    Also is the guy peeking from behind wearing US woodland uniform?


    Quite interestingly this seems to be the same uniform and webbing as on previous picture but the rifles are wrong. They are not L1A1s as JDF should had but some metric FN Fals so it is probably some other country.




    Again the cameraman in the background might be wearing woodland uniform with pattern 58 webbing?

    And the last picture from Urgent fury:


    I don´t know if they are L1A1s or FN Fals so I am unsure who are the guys on this picture.

    Interestingly enough, the man crouching in the first picture seems to be wearing French F2 combat pants if I am not mistaken. Note the snaps as opposed to most other pictures which seem to show a unique style of pants with two button closures. Also that man is wearing 2nd model jungle boots, no reinforcements, cool, but not surprising. Uniforms seem to be some kind of DPM in a few shots, maybe British tropical?

    Thanks for the cool pics!

    Also in the 1st pic,the guy crouching,his large pack seems to be made of sort or 2 tone webbing-have some of this somewhere and always wondered what it was as dont think its British issue and also on the subject of the 58 Patt large pack,nice to see it in use as it was hardly used by the British Army being to it being pretty useless for actual use(used in and during training).

    I know Barbados was also involved. Maybe they are from there?
