    DESERT DPM TROUSERS & SHIRTS,TIME FRAME HELP PLEASE?

    Post by AndyD on Wed Oct 23, 2013 5:13 pm

    Hello,

    These items came in with a job lot of militaria.
    2 shirts/jackets and 2 pairs of trousers,all seem to be unissued/unused.

    Also there is an unissued pair of desert boots (not pictured)

    Can someone help me to identify the time period when these would have been used please?

    All help appreciated!

    Regards,
    Andy

    Trouser label (both pairs have the same label)
    One thing that struck me as odd is that neither pair of trousers have ties at the leg bottoms.

    Brilliant thanks Andy, I guessed by the label it would be these unusual types, I have NEVER seen any of these on the surplus market, congrats on these in my opinion rare versions of DPM lightweights, I like them a lot!Wink

    These would be the first issue. The trousers I've come across before but not many and the ones I have seen have had 4 colour camo sewn on the inside bits too.

    Hmm prices are difficult to gauge, but personally I would be prepared to pay up to £20 on ebay for a similar set, hope this helps;)

    Jackets arnt worth that much to be fair up to say £10 for the right size and new , I recently bought a new set jacket and trousers 1990 issue for £9.99 delivered. The trousers on the other hand mmmmm hard to gauge as non pop up for sale.

    tropical cut £10-15 depending on size and condition
    Tropical sparse £30 upwards size dependant

    These ???
