    Local made BPM Boonie hat

    When I used to travel to Hong Kong, back in the 80's, there was a small shop located in Stanley that carried local made DPM items.When I say small , I mean small, maybe 10 foot by 10 foot, with plywood walls and floors.
    Everything they had was in small sizes, and was only open when the Ghurka's were in town ( found this out a couple of times when I went back and the Ghurka's were in England).
    They carried uniforms, headgear, webgear, etc.
    I thought it was all gone, but opened a box the other day and found one of the boonie hats.
