    Wow! Awesome stuff! Oddly enough, the one that excited me the most is the 1957 winter liner! I don't specifically look for items like that, but I've certainly not run across any. Your Navy Jigsaw trousers are certainly not easy to find, nor is the general issue 1962 Jigsaw jacket.

    When I get a moment I will dig the quilted vest out and photograph it on its own.

    I assumed it was for keeping warm in aircraft, and during a parachute jump. I thought it was for para commando type usage rather than general winter clothing

    Hi Antarmike, It seems no one commented on your military vehicles in early posts, and I don't know if there is a section on the forum for vehicles either camo or OD. Looks like some good vehicles there.
    regards Jim.

    The lightweight sets are known as "jungle" or "poplin". They were issued to Belgian units serving in Africa from the 1980s into the mid 1990s. Newest production date I've seen is 1995. In addition to the shirt and trousers there is a brassard. Headgear was either a blue UN helmet or beret.

    For a time it was the only camouflage uniform worn by regular Belgian personnel (Airforce included). They didn't last very long in the field, so finding good used ones is difficult.

    Separate from this there was a special poplin trousers issued to Para/Commandos. It has baggy pockets on the thighs and also on the calves (total of 8 pockets). This predates the standard set above by quite a bit, first being made in 1972 IIRC. No tops were made as the jump smocks were worn with the trousers.

    Extremely rare examples of the Para/Commando trousers in poplin Brush camouflage exist. I've only seen a couple (I have one). There's also a heavier weight version of the Para/Commando trousers in Jigsaw, which is also quite rare.

    The 2nd Commando Battalion is a military formation of the Belgian Army and part of the Paracommando Regiment. Its regimental traditions, including the name "Commando" and the green beret, were adopted from the Belgian soldiers who served in No. 10 (Inter-Allied) Commando during the Second World War.
    .......  Or so I am told.

    Reformation 2003
    The brigade was disbanded in 2003 and replaced with the new Immediate Reaction Cell (IRC) which now groups all airborne personnel into three airborne infantry battalions, but does away with the independent support units typical of a brigade structure. Support units have been re-attached to regular battalions, but have retained some airborne capacity. The IRC has its headquarters in Heverlee. The three remaining airborne infantry battalions are located as follows:

    1 Paratroop Battalion in Diest disbanded on 1 July 2011 and its troops distributed between the other two brigades)
    2nd Commando Battalion in Flawinne
    3 Paratroop Battalion in Tielen

    Although these battalions refer to either paratroopers or commandos, all troops have received the same training and perform the same duties. Individual battalion traditions cause units to have different designators, beret colours and insignia. 2 COMMANDO and Paracommando Field Artillery wear green berets, 1 PARA, 3 PARA and the Guides RECCE Squadron wear maroon berets, inspired by the ancient Greek Spartans, which symbolise their dedication, loyalty, physical and mental fitness and will to fight.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_beret  where read "The Belgian 2nd Commando Battalion inherited the green beret along with other traditions from the 4th Troop of No.10 Commando.  While members of the Belgian 3rd Parachute Battalion have gone through the same training as 2nd Commando, including the commando course, they wear maroon berets instead of green ones."

    The Beret is not dark green which would be correct for Belgian medical Component,  It is Green. as worn by 2 commando and Paracommando Field Artillery and the Commando Training Centre.  The Chasseurs Ardennais wear an Olive Greeen beret.  I think the artificial lighting under which the photo was taken, my camera and the display screen you are using leads you to think the beret is dark green, it is not it is the correct green. AFAIK.


    Thanks for you input but I feel you are wrong.

    I do admit the Transmission Troup beret badge is currently on the wrong colour beret, That should be on a grey beret.  Had you pointed that out I would have to admit you were right., but as yet I have not come across a suitable grey beret .  ( might put a Royal Military Academy on this beret)  and 16 Pantser Infantry should arguably be on a black beret.
