    Australian DCU gore tex rain gear ShareActions (afghan 2001/02)

    Hi All

    Here is a set of aussie made DCU goretex rain gear, this was made in 1999 when it was realised Australia had no wet weather desert gear. Approximately 150 sets were produced and these were issued to SASR in 2001 when they were deployed to Afghanistan in the opening stages of OEF. There were so few sets available that when the initial squadron rotated out they handed them over to the next squadron for use.

    Hope you enjoy the pics.

    Nice set, complemented by cool reference pics. As yourself and Martin has these it looks like I'm living in the wrong state! However, if you do come across another item of these I'd be interested ...

    Thanks guys! And at first I just assumed we would have had US stuff as well but no apparently we decided to be different.
