    Weird Sniper/Aircrew Smock?

    Post by Tommo on Sat Oct 22, 2011 2:42 pm

    Here it is, its sort of inbetween and Aircrew Smock and Sniper Smock its also its the same cut as an Aircrew Smock but I doubt its a modified one as there is another on EW-Trading, possibly company modified/prototype? , not bad for a fiver though, saved me £40 because the bloke didn't know what he was selling, there were also some MINT 68 Pattern Smocks aswell, but I didn't ask on those Smile I think its 68 Pattern as the colour and pattern differs from my 85 Pattern Smock, the photo doesn't do the Pattern justice though.

    Unfortunately my watch list was full so have no record of it but as it was only yesterday it may well still be on Ebay somewhere.
