    Yet another good score! Of all the Brit smocks I've seen/own that are prior to CS95, these are my favourite both in design and functionality. cheers

    Thanks Ben.

    The only down side to these is no hood option, but it has lasted this long so should give many more years... Wink

    This is what is called P94. It was a mass produced, but short lived, uniform intended to replace P84. Instead it was quickly replaced by S95. It comes in a variety of colors. The one most associated with this is the deep golden color variant as Gilles posted.

    At one point I had about 20 sets of these, which allowed me to get a pretty good idea of the color variety. I'm down to a few odds and ends.

    Thanks Steve,good info, and having 20 must have been an excellent way to compare pattern's ,I generally rely on what I've got ,and of course pic's on the forum Wink

    What I find interesting about these transitional jackets,is the large 25mm buttons previously found on Falklands issue Parka's,often wondered why the MOD,went back to using these style buttons scratch

    Thanks again Steve Wink

    Sometimes the best way to "research" something is to buy a huge box of the same item. This is how I found that there are actually something like 6 different cuts of German Flecktarn, about a half dozen Alpenflage patterns (not colors, I mean patterns), etc. It's a very bulky way to do research, but it's hard to beat Wink

    It makes it much easier to get into and close up the pockets with cold/wet hands or when wearing gloves!!!

    Makes total sense to have large buttons , with cold wet hands, I always thought the zipped pockets were a genius idea too Wink

    Much easier to stow notebooks and maps in these than in the inside pockets on the previous issues of smock.

    There was an unofficial mod to add a zip sided pocket behind one of the chest pockets on the '68 pattern. One of our SNCO's had one and I recall that he it called the "Cyprus" pocket as it was done by a tailor on the island when he was on tour there.
