    DPM is still one of my absolute favourite patterns... It's a shame it's been relegated to the dustbin in favour of MTP.

    But at least they kept DPM shapes in it as a reminder of its roots. Smile

    It was my understanding that MTP is an across-the-board replacement for all forms of DPM. When it was first introduced, it was used alongside existing stocks of DPM until those had been depleted or rendered unserviceable; then after a certain date it would be the only pattern in circulation and on general issue for the British military.

    Territorial Army units may still be actively using DPM, but I am not sure.

    Ok thats interesting. I think i've heard that they will stop using the woodland DPM uniforms, but keep the desert DPM uniforms for ,,real,, desert needs.

    They no longer issue either, but they keep hold of the woodland.
    All deserts are handed back in to stores.

    A very nice example, and that label makes it not later than 1972 so one of the earliest ones.

    Your most welcome Alex.. and thanks again for the Austrian gear you sent in trade!!! nice to see your other mint P68 for fade comparison!!! just makes the minty one look even better!!! see you also added the rank slides I sent too!!! I think the one on the size 6 is for staff Sargent major 1st class!!
    the other DPM one I sent you is for a Drum major bandsman (four stripes and a crown) the MTP ones are staff Sargent SSGT (three stripes and crown) and warrant officer WO1 (crest of arms)
