    Thanks.

    Some headgear:









    BTW: Does somebody know if the field caps are in widespread use? I never saw pics of soldiers wearing them....

    I believe they are generally issued whilst recruits are in training, in the Army they are often know as 'Crap Hats'.

    I heard another C-word used to describe it. But the meaning is similar :-)

    Nice desert smocks! I haven't seen one like the Hooper named one before. And the Greenwood named smock is a nice early private purchase, early to mid 90s at a guess.

    Thanks, I'm still a bit confused by the different variants they made.... Laughing
    The Hooper named one reminds me a bit of the FR or aircrew stuff. Maybe its the early variant....

    Just a quick question.. sorry I know I can Google this. I just wanted the answers straight from fellow collectors.

    Is "Pecoc" a DPM pattern variant like the "Soldier 2000" ?
