    Well, these may be cool to wear, but they don't offer much protection against mosquitos...

    Hello,

    Very nice display and photos.

    GAO shirts and shorts appeared for the first time during operation Manta in Chad 1983.
    Before, soldiers used lightweit "model 1947 allégé" jacket/shirt (Lizard camo or Olive Green) and model 1946 short (Olive green or Tan).

    Same thing with the Bob, "chapeau de brousse model 1949" (bush hat) was still widely used until 1980.

    Regards,

    Mellon

    You welcome.

    The lightweight Model 47 "allegée" jacket was usually worn as a shirt.
    For hot weather in Africa, soldiers could wear the standard model 1948 shirt (Olive Green) or a short arm shirt (i don't remember the pattern)

    Until the 1980's, french soldiers in african operation, had the same clothing system as in Algerian war time.
    Models 1964 satin300 jacket + trousers were usually considered inappropriate for hot weather. Hence, in 1978 the Foreign Legion jumped over Kolwezi in OG satin300, but soon dropped it for mle 47 fatigues.
