    Para smock in MTP ?

    Post by L1A1 on Mon Apr 09, 2012 4:27 pm

    I know there was a thread here back in 2011 about a custom made Para Smock in MTP ( an ordinary smock converted ? )

    Just seen another on ebay - item 180858416348

    Can you post a link?

    They are custom, there is no operational requirement for a Para Smock at the moment, one because the S2005/PCS Smocks have been cleared for jumping and because the Paras also have retained their CS95 uniforms.

    However, I'd like one to be made, as MTP/PCS kit just generalises the army.

    They are not allowing me to post link as I am too new ?

    Just type that item number into ebay search box and it should come up.

    There is an MTP issue para smock. It just hasn't been issued yet. I've seen the garment. Defo not a made-up piece.

    Whether it goes on general issue or not is anyone's guess.

    On one of the WW2 reenactment forums theres a guy who makes hand painted early WW2 repro Denisons and from memory when last time one of these MTP smocks was spotted it came out that it was a custom jobby made by him-PEGASUS DRIVE i think is the name he goes by.

    There are plenty of non issue MTP para smocks but, at the risk of repeating myself, there are a precious few issue ones but they have yet to go on general issue and may never ............
