    GROM coveralls

    Post by bond007a1 on Mon Feb 16, 2009 10:40 pm

    This first one was used in Iraq in the opening days of the war around 2003. I got this from a guy in Poland who I have suspicions was/is a GROM operator. The set is well used & has rips 7 the knife pocket has been resewn & has red paint on it from ??? (and no...it is not paintball)





    the knife pocket



    THE 2ND COVERALLS...I got this from the same guy, this one is dated 1991...about a year after the group was activated...My guess is these were used in training exercises.





    the markings inside

    thought I'd contribute to this thread, this is the lightweight ripstop one piece camo overall worn by 1 Commando troops in Iraq. These came from a section commander, is quite nice in that it has blood type written on the sleeve as well as blood type tab. I'm thinking the 1 commando patch was added after he got home, this is an Iraq worn uniform.

    Also attached a pic of the uniform in a Polish SF magazine.

    Steven,

    Nice piece! I wonder if it is a flight suit or if it is customized for GROM use.

    Chris,

    I think you must have the best connection to Poland of anybody I know, including my Polish contacts! Thanks for sharing the pics. I never knew they had a coverall in ripstop Pantera.
