    Yikes as always Mr. Easy, well done to you!

    An amazingly well kept set and the wonderfully effective, if quirky, hat to boot!

    But allow me to ask one pressing question, and I am in no way bitter, jealous or resentful, simply intriqued;

    When it comes to French, camouflaged gear, it seems to be 10 times more easy to pick up a mint 1960's shelterhalf or a near-new set of 1970-80's lizard, F1-type jackets, shirts or trouser, than it is see contemporary CCE out there in just relative o.k. nick.

    Are French CCE-items government controlled like Irish Defence Force DPM's, Canadian CADPAT or my own native Danish M/84?

    I have come across hobbit-sized jackets on webshops, eBay or even in French flea markets, but all looked like they had been thoroughly stone-washed by some hideous 80's die-hard and then plucked at with glowing tongs.

    To add insult to injury, a Canadian fellow IACMC-member (and great trader), told me the Canadian markets was near overflowing with cheap CCE and Daguet/desert uniforms.

    Am I simply missing the good stuff or will I have to take up French-lessons in evening school to track down these relatively common but yet elusive uniforms?

    Hi Saltefanden.

    Many thanks for your compliments, they are appreciated.

    As far as I know CCE is not government controlled , and is readily available on the UK surplus market. But saying that I regularly visit/buy from France ebay, and CCE is not exactly the dominant camo over there, unalike the UK where DPM is so common it's quite exasperating.

    I got both these items off ebay-UK, the Trousers where advertised as Childrens Trousers, as the leg is 24 inches long
    ( approx 61 cm) clearly the seller did not know what they were..luckily for me I do!!

    The cap, was bought off a Militaria seller who regularly sells French kit, at bargain prices.

    I wish the Daguet Camo was as common as the CCE, for this I have to buy from France, or get occasionally lucky through my personal Militaria contacts where I live.

    I guess it is a strange phenomenom that CCE is common here, not so in France Shocked

    I wish you the best of British luck in sourcing some CCE.


    Many thanks again for looking, and for your interesting queries, Gary Very Happy

    Cheers Mr. E. Gee

    Thank you for the words of encouragement and a possible explananation for why CCE keeps eluding me;
    I'll try and scour the eBay.co.uk and not the eBay.fr websites.

    And yes, strangely enough the amount of head wear, from helmets, helmet covers, boonie hats and caps does seem overwhealmingly pleantyful compaired to uniform bits, totally opposite of the usual rule, where hats or helmets are the most scarce.

    But thank you once again Gary, and keep posting your fine finds!

    Your Welcome Mate,I would recommend ebay UK, maybe the postage will be very expensive though!!

    I look forward to seeing any CCE you manage to gather, and of course I will keep posting my finds too.

    Nice to spaeak to you, Gary Very Happy

    And here's a few more to expand on my CCE collection to share with you all.

    Trousers.

    Jacket.


    This one is a little different in that is was made in Bulgaria,has no neck guard,and has clearly been written off from service due to the Opex Inapte popper on the collar.

    CCE F2 Jackets

    Post by Easy Gee on Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:22 am

    Here's some more CCE jackets form my collection,all these examples have a button sewed on to attach a fourragère, and stitches sewn on to attach a Brevet Parachutists badge, I suspect some are former legion due to the velcro patch arrangement.
