    Yes, and DAMNED expensive too Very Happy Land 125 stuff goes for a good amount of cash. I've got a pretty good used set and I'm not planning on upgrading to an unissued one unless something falls out of the sky with no strings attached!

    You got a great deal, especially on the 2nd Model. I'm currently negotiating with someone and he wants about 500 AUD for his. He says, and I believe him, that's pretty much the going rate. My experience with Australian collectors is that they are pretty specialized on their own kit and are willing to throw vast sums of money at things they really want. I had one seller with a Red AUSCAM set and he wanted $1200 for it. I think he actually did sell it for around that. Ugh!

    Steve, 500 AUD for a 2nd pattern DPDU is pretty much the current rate...
    And yes, Australian Colletors are really willing to spend very large amounts of money for stuff they want. Ask my WIFE!!!!! Twisted Evil muuuuaaahhh

    Currently, there is a Buy-out-auction on ebay for about 20 complete (hat and collar) Light Horse Regiment badges 1930-1942 selling at 14,500 AUD...

    @Mr-X:
    Could you pls send me a close-up picture of the JTF 663 patch. Thanks.

    The yellow-patterned DPDU is the only desert AusCam pattern I'm really interested in. And sadly, it seems to be one of the more expensive ones. Laughing

    I feel lucky to have as much Aussie kit as I have. I've got a pretty good range of 80s experimental stuff, for example, before the prices went sky high. I've seen single pairs of 80s trousers go for close to $100 AUD. Oh well, perhaps I'll get lucky and land some of the early desert cams someday.

    The 'yellow pattern' DPDU is the 3rd pattern print. When the uniform cut changed to the Land 125 format some collectors referred to the new uniform as the '4th pattern' even though the camo print itself did not change. Depending on one's point of view this is 'sort of' incorrect.

    What I am getting at is that it is the 'yellow pattern' (3rd) DPDU is still quite affordable (relatively) if in the now obsolete cut of uniform. Paradoxically, it is the 1st and 2nd pattern DPDU that are the more expensive ones!

    Yup, Filupe is of course correct. The use of language for uniforms that changed both cut and colors/patterns is pretty important, but unfortunately collectors often don't use the same terms the same way. I usually try to use the words "model" for the issue, "cut" or "type" for the construction, and "pattern" for the camouflage itself because often there are more changes to one than the other. I've also seen Aussie collectors refer to the models using "Mark" and "Model".

    There are 4 models of the DPDU (Desert) uniform, but only 3 patterns of the camouflage. The first three are fairly similar in cut, based on the long running style used throughout the 90s and early 2000s. The fourth model is officially called Land 125 and is a completely different cut, with vertical zip chest pockets, velcro on the arms, etc. Model 3 and Land 125 use the identical camouflage cloth/colors.

    It's best to refer to the "4th model" as Land 125 because a) it's the right thing to do, b) it avoids confusion with earlier models, and c) it doesn't irritate Australians who play gobs of cash for this stuff Smile

    Hope that helps!

    Well, if that is the case...can someone please point me in the direction of some relatively cheap "obsoletely cut" yellow DPDU? lol!

    Please note that "relatively cheap" equals $150 instead of $300 Smile I don't see many on eBay, so it appears you gotta know some Aussie with a connection. I got mine from someone in the service just before the regulations changed to make the kit controlled.

    I have another guy I got a ton of 3rd patt suff from (different from the one with the 2nd & 4th pattern- SteveG) I will try to see if his email still works and see if he has anything, only prob is he can be slightly high, I should not say this but my very first 3rd patt set ran me $350, but it came with a 2nd patt boonie hat & 3rd patt frill cap(whatever it is called) If I hear from him, I will let you know, I will also ask him about the earlier stuff for you Steve G. Philip I will let you also know if he has anything

    Steven, thanks for the updates!

    I love Aussies in general, but their panache for spending gobs of cash on their kit really irritates me Very Happy
