Another fine example of British Combat Jackets this one is a 85 Pattern.
More pockets in and out than you can shake a stick at. And the added bonus over the 68 Pattern in that is has ...velcro wrist adjusters...wow
Anyway enough of that..enjoy

Nice one! I'm enjoying these DPMs you are posting.
I'm a fan of all DPM!... but what camo collector in his right mind isn't.
Same here with Indonesian DPM, although I think your task is slightly larger and more varied.
Good luck. The 2000 Version should be a piece of cake.
