    Did you get them from the same source? If so that's impressive...I managed to source mine from a mate in the Para's...it's badged up as PF Platoon with Subdued OG American wings on the right pocket, very nice item but don't know the legitamcey of it... I got told some of the lads just wore them around camp as they were 'Alley' and not many about so I can sort of see someone possibly in the PF Platoon having one?

    Yes,both from the same source along with a desert shirt. All 3 have traces of a DZ patch being reomved but the stitch marks/outline suggest whatever was on there is smaller than the std DZ patches,have asked the seller what it was and am hoping for a reply. Also asked the seller what the history was behind them and was told--They were used on several operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Peace keeping in Cyprus.

    When I spoke to my contact, he said a order was produced for 3 Para when they went into Afgan, I don't know how many smocks were produced but they are identical to their Woodland smocks albeit Deset DP. I have a picture somewhere of a Tom in the field wearing his, it's group pic with other Paras. I will try dig it out.

    I have seen on a website a while ago they were selling them for £50...it could have been SASS.

    I am still awaiting a response from the seller(the previous owner) of the smocks as to what the missing DZ patches were.

    No worries, it does not detract from how cool these smocks are either way8)

    IF I was to sell either it would probably be the one with the subdued wings which is labelled as an L which I would estimate to be a 44 possibly 46 chest,other is more like a 42""
