    Don't know how I missed this one, Gary. Cool stuff! Nothing beats classic olive green. I really like the jacket.

    There were a bunch of these type jungle hats at a surplus place I visited last year -- they were all in tiny sizes. I often wonder where the human-sized ones got to! Laughing

    Yep,over the years ive had a few of these hats(and the desert tan ones) but 99% in tiny sizes. Am lucky now to have 1 of each in wearable sizes Very Happy

    I guess these Denims were meant as work gear to replace the WW2 type Denim BD Blouse+Trs but believe the trs were loved and used as Combat trs by some squaddies?

    No worries,just wish i could find the other pairs to compare.

    Weird that there was no standardised way of labelling these things as your Jkt is dated but my Trs arent??

    Just found another pair,label faded and check out the killer seams sewn into these Shocked Very Happy

    As they were work/utility trs somebody went to a bit of trouble getting these looking smart.

    Very cool Rich,I've seen many,many lightweights with seams sewn in,never these type stands.

    Not sure why a REME type would want his work trousers with a "sharp crease" in them,but this just adds more interest to these period trews me thinks Wink

    Cheers Gary,mine looks unissued and as always the British Army Sizing system makes no sense as it fits me ok and im 5 foot 10 with a 39 chest.

    Strange item of clothing really.

    No Worries Mate, the old style of sizing is very odd I must agree...

    Still makes a nice change from DPM me thinks Wink

    Great video,1987 Royal Marine Comando officers course with the candidates wearing the overall jacket.

    Some may as well be wearing the trs but from what i could see they were wearing lightweights.

    Reason i say they were wearing lightweights is that the trs all have the leg pocket which the overall trs dont-or so i thought.

    Over on another forum a member has posted a pic of a pair of overall trs that DO have the leg pocket Shocked

    So now thats another damn item i need to find for the collection!!!

    I had one of those jackets when I did the All Arms Commando Course, they were worn over an issued blue or green Rugby shirt with white collar
