    Does anybody know if the PCS garments on E Bay are trial items or is PCS going on general issue to the RAF? Prices are steep but don't know wethere to invest or wait?

    I have seen photos of the Navy PCS. It looks to be slightly darker than the RAF version. I first thought they were the same but the RAF version mentions the RAF on the labels. I have not handled a navy version so I do not know what the labels say.

    Thanks gents, I think I might wait at the moment to purchase a set of RAF PCS as on evil bay they are priced extortionately!! If they are going on general issue, I think more of these will turn up!

    Not correct. I have a blue PCS set which clearly states on the Smock " SMOCK COMBAT WINDPROOF RAF BLUE" do you need a photo?

    In order to avoid misunderstanding, by the above quote,  I meant that the labels are not trial issue but general RAF issue as stated in my previous post

    I haven't seen any being worn by the RAF members recently, possibly a new thing?
