    Belgian and Canadian MPs in 1965

    Post by edstorey on Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:47 pm

    Here is a Canadian Forces photograph from 1965 showing a Belgian and Canadian MP with some local children who are checking out the field telephone. The Canadian is wearing the just issued OG107 Green Combat Uniform with the older 1949 Pattern Bush Hat where as the Belgian appears to be wearing a WWII Denison Smock (or perhaps a Belgian copy) with web Anklets.

    The Canadian is also wearing 1951 Pattern Web Equipment which would soon be replaced by 1964 Pattern.

    Nice picture!

    The Belgian MP is wearing a Belgian Brushstroke Denison smock, probably made in the 1950s as I don't think I've stumbled upon any made in the early to mid 1960s. Theres several variations in cut, though generally very minor.

    That's just a great photo. Seriously. I've bought prints in a similar vein to this one before off ebay. It's a fabulous vignette. =]
