    Looks to be standard S95 or later kit. Chest rank is the tipoff. The tags also look to be MoD and not private.

    The early S95 kit had shoulder epaulettes and no chest rank. Then the jackets, at least, had epaulettes and chest rank, then just the chest rank.

    Having said that,my interest in Temperate DPM ends in 1982 so am not really clued up on the later more modern patterns as they dont interest me one bit.

    The S95 stuff went through the usual bumps and twists as it matured. The early desert stuff used the older dish style buttons before moving to the Canadian style. I've got 4 different shirts here that are post 1995. Two have dish buttons, two do not. There are other differences such as shoulder and chest epaulettes.

    The temperate stuff comes in both ripstop and smooth poly/cotton. The poly/cotton stuff has Canadian buttons and is all over the place. The ripstop stuff also uses Canadian style buttons.
