    hi.  Here's mine.  Love the 70-90's timeframe of British Army!  Here's my recent fleebay acquisition, UK lightweights.  They're mint and have the leg pocket.  I tried wearing them out on the town the other night but my old lady told me I looked like an old man.  I quickly changed into everyman jeans.

    Pretty sure the later(last)issue did away with the thigh pocket.

    I have seen some with No thigh pocket which IMO was the best pocket because as I said earlier if you put anything in the side pockets and sat down it fell out.

    Was never in the armed forces but did a brief spell in the ACF and much preferred the Lightweights over the DPM combat trs we had as they looked much smarter.
