    British 3 colour DPM

    Post by ScribblerJohn on Sat Feb 28, 2009 2:56 pm

    I have a sample suit of the 3 colour DPM the MOD tested at the start of the war when they realised they couldn't use the 4 colour as they'd sold loads of it to Iraq 4 years earlier. I'd be really grateful of any definitive information anyone has on this kit as lots of people seem to have heard rumours but thta's all, no solid facts. I'd also like to get some realistic idea of it's value.
    The suit consists of a Dennison style jacket



    with 1968 style trousers, manufactured by Smiths of Grantham.

    John...I so far have not been able to dig any info up on it yet...I got an email back from a guy and he has no info on it other than the specualtion that you referred to...as far as value...since noone seems to have a set of the stuff as far as I have seen thus far...I would say its priceless Very Happy but no...as far as value it is hard to say but definately up in the hundreds since it is so scarce....just my opinion for what it is worth..I will keep digging.

    I have an Iraqi Republican Guard shirt that is almost identical to this pattern. It is a very thin shirt and has no manufacturers tags on it. It was found on the Highway of Death after the action was completed. Very nice set you have there!
