    That's a really good deal Mate, that's about the equivelant of about £8.00 over here, I can get badged DPM's for about £5-£6, so considering your all the way over there, that's bloody brilliant Mate, if I was you I would keep buying them at that kinda price Henry .

    Cheers Mate if you get any more post em' up, it will be nice to what sort of Pom Jacket's turn up at your end Very Happy

    thank dan,

    obsolete auscam shirts/pants, and cadet dpcus are the cheapest and most abundant! So as 1970-1980 Jungle green stuff ( pre-dpcu issue) Desert items are very hard to come by, and ebay is your best bet for a decently priced set

    Henry,

    Did you source all of these in Sydney? I was there a few weeks ago on my way from Singleton and found 'zzzzzzip'. I was disappointed that two of my favourite haunts i.e. Napoleon's military bookshop (next to QVB) and the 'Militaria' shop on George St. (next to 'Lawrence Ordnance') are no longer there. There used to be King's and Mitchell's Army Disposal down Pitt Street but although they are still in the phone book, the physical shops are no longer there. Aussie green stuff (VN-80's era) is getting hard to find unless it's repro crap.

    Cheers,

    Usually that's the case but when we made the changeover from the old cut of cams (with the buttoned pockets) to the Land 125 cut, we were allowed to retain all the old uniforms even though they were 'struck off' our Q record. That was just our unit but I also suspect that was a widespread policy.

    Hey mate, yep the Joss Richardson militaria shop closed down last year, so as the napoleon,Mitchell, and King all closed down...terrible. The still one Mitchells in york st though. Lawrence Ordnance is still alive, hopefully it stays that way. Theres one in Paramatta,but they quite pricey but stock nice kit, from LAND 125s to NZ dpms

    The First one (Gulf War era) and the UBACS i got from NZ, The RMC badged one from a weekend market and the rest from lawrence...
    goretex dpm was from ebay.

    There are still plenty of Aussie greens trou in sydney shirt are hens teeth, just got a 1986 dated trou, but cargo pockets are positioned bdu style rather than the aussie VN ones....

    mate not in the army or ADF for that matter, but plenty of recruiters still walk around in the older cams, did see one RAAF bloke wearing old style auscam material in LAND 125 cut...very amusing

    Yeah, pity - Richo used to get some pretty off the wall stuff but I always suspected that shop was a front for neo-nazis due to some of the clientele I've seen in there. I was quite surprised when he hired that Korean bloke to run the shop for him that knew f*ck all about militaria!

    I was down in Parramatta too - is it 'Surplus City' down there? I saw it in the phone book but thought it was some camping shop which I'd run across down there before. It was probably just down the road from Battlebridge Books which I spent most of the morning at Razz

    You'd definitely puke when you hear what happens to our boots ...

    In the Reservist stream, there's a certain proportion that join for a little while and then decide that it's not for them so they hand the gear back. Uniforms and webbing get recycled back to be reissued but boots, even if they look brand new, will get sliced and dumped - no exceptions. Apparently something to do with communicable foot diseases. I wonder what the policy is in other armies?

    No way, that is criminal , all they gotta do is spray them with anti-bac , and surely they would be good to go Evil or Very Mad

    I have worn many ex-services boot's over the years, and never caught food rot, toe jam etc. Foot hygiene is a high priority in the Armed services no matter what the country of origin.

    I think this is the case in the Regular British Army too, maybe in the TA they recycle kit that's hardly been used!

    As for Richo- lucky for me never came across these neo-nazis, god knos what theyre capable of.... pirat
    Most nazi germany stuff are repro he says, the orginal stuff are usually priced over 100 bucks...aside from that, did once saw hand-painted webbing from OP catalyst, NZ DPM throughout the times, many many stuff you'd rarely see on ebay...since the shop closed down, only rich himself knows where it all went..

    Yep Surplus city it is! It still open, when you come over try taking a look- i spent almost an hour there, had some pretty cool stuff there

    Well, I've just put in for a range course at Singleton next month so I might be back there sooner than I thought ...

    Thanks for the update, mate. Will check them out next time I'm in town. Just cruised Richo's website - not much there and what there is, is overpriced. Sad

    No worries mate.It was never easy to browse around Richo`s shop then anyway what with the cramped space and shelves not unless you are after something specific.Not an ideal set up if you are treasure hunting so to speak.Your best bet in Sydney would be surplus city in Parramatta...just a bit pricey though but they have the most variety that I`ve seen in the city.
