    A few more Desert bit's N Bob's I picked up recently at a car boot sale, the Vest was £4.00 and appears to be unissued, the Jacket was £1.50, the belt 50p again unissued, the bergan cover was also 50p. Understandably I was quite chuffed with this little haul Very Happy

    Hi Rich.

    It is similar to tea bag material, and the label is of a later type, white cotton label... scratch

    Hi Graham, thanks for your input, does yours have a zip?.

    Awhile back I looked into label types, and began to work out a system, but since then I went off the trail as it were, I assumed Op Granby issued Lightweight Jackets had the yellow labels, it looks like at some stage they MOD changed to these white labels Question

    Thanks Graham, that is good to know, so it's looking more and more like the MoD had two types of labels in use with these jackets,this only makes me wonder if there are more than two??

    Cheers Mate Smile

    Probably a more recent shirt.. aside from the label, even the buttons are diffent from Og.Grandby DDPM shirts (and similar to latest issued tropical DPM shirts). Wink

    These shirts and trousers are been used in the first year of Op. Herrick/Telic

    Lorenzo Agreed on some points, but disagree on others.

    These Jackets were made by many manufacturers including Induyco in Madrid!!!

    Depending on manufacture the buttons can range from grey/beige through plain beige to a very light white/sand.

    Totally agree that there is clear evidence that these Jackets were used in Telic.

    Through my research I have discovered that the most common Operation Granby issue Jackets have the Compton and Webb label, the Jackets with the white cotton labels less scarce, the Jackets with the Induyco labels ,as rare as hen's teeth.

    Many thanks for your input nevertheless Smile

    I know, but take a look on this latest issued tropical shirt (late '90 I think), button type (large and flat) and shirt style/material are nearly the same of "white label" shirts Wink

    Do you have any photo about GW1 "white label" shirts??


    Btw... British militaria is anything but exact science! Very Happy

    Hi Lorenzo, yes I see what you mean now, yes the Op Granby Desert Jackets are based on the style of the Tropical.

    I fully intend to create a thread of the different types's of Desert Lightweight jackets one day, just never got around to it yet.

    I could not agree more my friend, Brit clothing can be most confusing to collectors!

    regards Gary. Very Happy

    InduycoDDPM Jacket

    Post by Easy Gee on Wed Sep 26, 2012 12:18 pm

    Here's a Op Granby era lightweight Jacket, made by Induyco S.A., I have not personally seen many of these Induyco made Jackets in others collections, but feel to let me know if you have one too Smile




    Non-Opti made zipper( this one is made by "D") and dark brown buttons.

    And the label,which is made of plastic not fabric.
