    This one suffered from the great British tradition De milling.
    One slashed garment with a blade to render them useless.
    Pretty sad , but thats how it was .
    This one has been repaired be a good Squaddie .

    Sweet!! What's the material like? Is it similar to the P68, or is it a special light weight cloth?

    That's the Pattern 1963 Windproof is it not?

    Yeah, I know your pain. These things keep me up at night dredging through the millions of DPM camo listings on eBay in the hopes of one day finding one mislabeled.
