    British Sniper Smock

    By the looks and feel of this I'd say this was issued in the 1980s or very early 1990s. Very good condition overall, but it looks like some foliage loops on the back were removed. The thick padding sewn in all over the uniform appears to be in good shape.

    Nice one, Steve! The sniper smocks have always been something neat to see.

    Is it just a field-modified parachutist's smock?

    No, bottom pockets are on the sides of the body not the front, there is padding, and a zip cover. Not sure if there is anymore.

    For sure not field modified, though I wouldn't be surprised if the factory made this using the para pattern as a base. Definitely has similarities with the para model.
