    Ethiopian DERG Camo Uniform

    Post by nkomo on Thu Feb 26, 2009 4:16 am

    This is one of the rarest uniforms in my collection. It is a Ethiopian camo uniform in the Korean noodle or sea-wave pattern. This was reportedly captured in Rhodesia in the late 1970's. Some people have said that this pattern was not invented until the 1980's time period, but there are examples of this pattern with dates of 1976. Whatever the case, this uniform has seen better days. It has numerous bullet holes and shrapnel holes. Notice the hammer and sickle on the collar tabs.
