    Here we have the latest  Short and long sleeve T-shirts issued to the Irish DF. Normal scale of issue is four of each to regulars and two of each to reservists.

    The T-shirts are a flame retardant mixture of Modacryl and viscose and are also sweat wicking. They are replacing the DPM T-shirts issued since 2010.The DPM t-shirt was unpopular as it trapped sweat,despite it being advertised as Breathable and stank to high heaven after a short time being worn,even while at rest. Notably the new tops omit the national flag and velcro patch for a rank tab which has seen a return to the practice overseas of having to have both sewn on as the dress in camp is T-shirt order. In my opinion this is an oversight but not surprising as in some quarters the practice of jsut wearing a t-shirt in camp in hot weathers is frowned open Rolling Eyes Sad Mad .

    Anyway. Enjoy the pics.
