    British Camo Jacket Questions

    Post by sgm on Thu Dec 23, 2010 8:07 pm

    I'm new to non-US militaria and I think this is a British jacket Is it? Also what is the correct name for this and what is the camo pattern called? Any idea of the age? Thanks, Scott

    You've got a trop shirt there, with very nice colouring to it. Great piece to have, for sure! Cool

    As others have said already, this is a standard tropical issue shirt that was made up to about 1994/95, though worn for a while after. There are several color variants so if trying to match the trousers exactly (not that the Brit soldiers cared that much) you have to be quite careful.
