    Perfect timing for me for a changed and bagged this bargain.

    Im not one to get excited by DPM colours etc but must say the colours on this(for a Para Smock) are amazing.

    Cuffs have unfortunately gone and the zip looks like it is a replacement(old Lightning)zip but love it,my best Para Smock by far.

    Pics on the way as soon as I can,anybody able to ID the shoulder patch please?

    Many Thanks

    I have seen it somewhere before but for the life of my cannot remember where but somebody has mentioned 19th Brigade?

    Also has 2 holes to right breast and the outline of where the previous owner had French Para Wings attached to the smock,which is nice.

    Thanks Colin for the info so my thoughts about the previous owner being non parachute regiment was right then.
