    Cyprus Camo shirt.

    Post by Easy Gee on Sun Jul 29, 2012 4:56 am

    Hi Guys.

    I picked this one up recently at a car boot sale for 50p, fantastic colours and condition...the down side is it would only fit a 5-6 year old kid, couldn't resist it really,as there's not many pieces in my collection I would consider to be "cute". Laughing

    A real novelty item, enjoy.

    Hi Arch ,yeah sorry I forgot to mention the story behind the patch,basically the little old lady on the stall told me that she had sewn it on for her grandson,when he was going through his "commando" phase. I guess the little boy who owned this one, grew out of it and asked mum and grandma to sell it off, shame he only got 50p for it, the bummer is it's too small for my nephew.

    As before I think this is very cool for a kid's "dressing up" Jacket... Wink

    Thanks Ben, I bought this one for my nephew, as he always bugging me about not having an Army jacket like Uncle Gary, but alas it's too small for him.

    I saw this one as just a peak of cloth amongst a pile of other crap,dragged it out and initially thought it must be a Cyprian Special Forces Hobbit Division jacket ,but no it's just kiddie-cammo Laughing

    But my niece is only 5,maybe it will fit her instead!!!

    Quite right there Ben, of course you know why hobbits make great SF operatives don't you?...'cos their big hairy feet are very stealthy, and they can sneak up on you and sell you novelty jackets,when your on the beach Smile Shocked

    Laughing You are quite right, I bought it for my nephew ,he tried it on and then moaned that it did not fit,back to the drawing board on this idea me thinks.

    I must say though, that everything I look at it ,it brings a smile to me face, it's so tiny,and therefore kind of cute, I think I'm getting soft in my old age.

    Thanks for looking Smile
