    Laughing Yes,I have my sources ( that sounds mysterious,and a little enigmatic, no ? )

    Ok,I confess another ebay purchase Embarassed Laughing

    I wish I could claim,that I dug these out of a surplus container full of GW kit,but sadly no !.
    There are none left in my surplus store's,or on any on-line Militaria sites.... Mad

    Interestingly,it was'nt until yesterday,that I realised,this jacket is the same in every aspect to,a Jungle trop jacket I picked up recently ( apart from the camo obviously),Field Dressing pockets on sleeves etc, which in weird way helps me to to date ,the forsaid Trop shirt!!! Very Happy

    I love it when clues off one piece help identify another! Makes the hobby that much more fun. Cool

    As i never knew about this sparse stuff until now-was it an official variation in colour/design or just a manufacturers print variation?
