    Here it is.
    There's a white label inside the lower front, almost washed out entirely, but there seem to be remnants of a few Greek looking letters
    in blue ink.

    The Greeks use straight edged/cornered pleated pockets, so this is consistent with that. Turks, however, also use the same style for their uniforms. Both have a history of OD uniforms, but I don't know the details of either. So if you see what looks to be Greek lettering, I'm sure it's Greek.

    Thanks, I'll see if I can get a good pic of the tag later, I made one before, but with flash it looked even more white than it already was

    It is a greek Jacket. Somewhere I read that these were used during the 1970s and 1980s.
    But I can't verify it until now.

    On an unrelated note, is that an Israeli canteen in the photo?

    Yes it is, I could take more photos of it if you'd like.
    It was supposedly bought by a Dutch guy in Lebanon who wanted an extra canteen, he sanded off most of the Israeli markings on the bottle itself.
    The pouch doesn't have the regular external markings, but a white label inside.

    And thanks for ID-ing the jacket as 70's-80's, as that is what I as hoping it to be from, as I might make a loadout from that era sometime in the future.

    Yes, if you have a chance I would be interested in seeing more details on the cover and canteen. I think I have a set nearly the same as that.

    I can take some pics tomorrow, does yours also just have a beltloop and the m1910 type belthooks?
    Others I've seen also had the British type C-belthooks.
