    Not always correct on the zipper mate Very Happy



    This is teh only smocj i've ever seen with this zipper but it is original to the smock. So whilst you are spot-on, there is always an exception to keep you guessing Laughing

    I stand corrected Dave, and Graham, your smock judging by the colours is one of the later 1990's ones Smile

    Hi Tommo
    I picked it up second hand from Duboras in the mid 90's because of the wings attached to it as they look Rhodesian I had intended to take them off the smock and add them to my Rhodesian collection, I was given a Mint pair of Rhodie wings, so the wings never got taken off the smock Im glad they stayed on the smock now I dont know why the Rhodie wings were put on a DPM para smock maybe the origional owner was ex Rhodesian army and had joined the British army at the end of Rhodesia.the photo is of the wings deffo not British
