    Brushstroke Uniform

    Not an original grouping but both in similar condition and size.










    The trousers are missing their tag but have "BST DARE" written on the interior of the waistband, not sure of its significance.





    The shirt was made by Paramount, a common feature I've noticed with their shirts are the "batwing" pocket flaps as opposed to the "V" ones from Statesman, for example.
    It has a significant amount of writing on the interior, which I wrote down to the best of my abilities:



      PIN DU RAI 539075
    COY   PLATOON   BE(D)?
     B          6          10
      R.(F)?.N.      D.R.R.
               QM



    I emailed Mr. MacKenzie of South Africa Militaria a couple years back for any information he could find on it, to which he responded:


    "...just checked and have no record of this man.

    His name sounds Indian.

    The RFN stands for Rifleman, which was his rank.

    DRR stands for Depot The Rhodesia Regiment, where most Rhodesia Regiment soldiers did their basic training..."





    Any info anyone else might have is greatly welcome!
    I've got tons of Rhodesian military photos, I'll post a few as reference and for fun.

    Enjoy!
