    Another one here. I can't remember where I picked mine up from but it's a nice fit (104C) 6070/0010 and great little lightweight jacket. It has the storm flap, zipped slant breast pockets and pop stud bottom pockets. dated 1989 made by Warein, Lille.

    Looks like a *parfait* kind of general-purpose jacket. =]

    --Keep 'em comin'. I gotta' know what to wish for, y'know? (Or... what to shop for. These pix help to sort out what the guys at the surplus store don't know, or don't want me to know).

    Upon a second glance I believe this is a M-64 not an F1, still related as this was the fore runner to the F1,and F2's, I have a couple of these myself, great Jackets,with the option of adding a hood,which was not followed on in to the F1 design. Wink

    Pictures can be supplied?


    Hiya George, when you say no pockets do you mean no lower pockets or no zipped upper pockets,pictures would be good mate, the more the better Very Happy

    sorry for the delay Gary! Better late than never i suppose, my jacket:

    the label reads 'Bidermann Uniformes, 1994, 120M, 7080/2030'

    Should have asked him for a trade, but of course that does depend on your bargaining skills in French Smile

    Ran across this one today: 1988 SO.VI.CO, (w/ storm flap) and had to have it-- although it is a bit too small:





    In excellent shape. Sateen, no indication of any de-mil-ing. Has a sticky snap on the right cuff, and a bit of wear on the enamel over the pebbling.

    If any of y'all would like to trade for a comparable bit of equipment that would fit a larger fellow who has a big head Wink , I'd be happy to talk.

    Cheers,

    --D.

    Nice one D, if you were closer I would most certainly send you one of my bigger size one's, but due to cost issues, no can do.

    Hopefully someone on your side of the pond will read this and be able to help Wink

    Sadly I was work and couldn't really talk much to him. Funny enough today I saw another French person wearing another jacket and I said 'I recognise the jacket' he was quite surprised Laughing
