    Some of my Collection

    Post by LeeKitchen1975 on Tue Feb 25, 2014 9:17 am

    We have just moved house and thought it was a good oppertunity to get some of my collection out for some pics !!!

    Parka's Cold Weather









    Can anybody tell me the pattern of the lighter colour parka ? Its almost Tropical....

    Some other bits....





    RN Gortex



    Desert Para Smock (PF Platoon Badged) Dont know the authenticity of this as I got off a friend in 2 Para and when I looked at the smock, it looked as if it had been badged previously to 2 Para.



    Some of my Tropics !!

    Ha ha ha B20, my wife had a fit when she saw it all...over years I have hid bits here and there...had nowhere to hide it all when we moved!! Was rumbled!!!

    Was great to take stock of my kit, does make me wonder why I am watching a MTP smock on evil bay when I have x2 MTP 95 pattern and x5 PCS!! All I can say is I like a bargin!!

    I was going to take more pictures but just didn't have time, a lot of my kit standard stuff apart from the experimental bits which I have uploaded.. The Cold Weather Parka in the bright colours is awesome...I matched it up to some of my Tropics and the colours are close!!

    Then you haven't collected enough kit! You shouldn't be able to see the floor Very Happy

    Seriously, good pile of kit! The more the merrier with those tropicals, IMHO.

    I have 2 spare bedrooms and I now cannot get into either with stuff piled high in both(and every other spare cm of space in the house!!).

    Seriously getting out of hand now and need to shift I would estimate a good half of it.

    Heh... yeah, that's kinda what my wife says about my collection at times.  She has asked me, point blank, "what is the difference between your collecting and hoarding?".  I answered "Hoarders stash away junk that is either worthless or is actual trash.  On the other hand, people want my stuff and it's value is likely equal to that of the house itself".  She then says "great, then you can solve two problems at once by selling everything"  I do love her so Very Happy

    It's funny you say that Alex, I track all my items on a excel document, sad I know - it's the controller in me!! But I have 67 smocks altogether!! In total, all my item comes in at 276 individual items ranging from smocks, shirts and trousers to self inflating beds, arctic/jungle sleeping bags and brown PCS boots.

    I think the biggest problem I have had is I thought I have bought genuine issued items, the pictures look authentic and from the pattern etc I thought they were genuine...it's fair to say I have 4-5 non genuine smocks!!! Sad not included in the above - I've given these to my dad!! Smile

    Yeah thats stupid, when you think you've bought something genuine and than its fake or commercial.I don't know exactly, how many things I have.But last week my
    wardrobe-clotheshanger pole broke down. Seems the stuff hanging on it
    was to heavy, so I guess its quite a nice number of pieces I have Laughing

    At one stage many many moons ago I had lists of everything I owned and could quickly find out where,when,and how much I paid for a certain item-now I dont even know what I have anymore!!

    My trouble is I have 2 lots of gear,stuff for the collection but am a sucker for if I see something that I have no interest in whatsoever but said item/s are going cheap enough that I may sometime sell them for a small profit or use them as a trading item,if I have some spare cash(collect on a VERY TIGHT budget) then 9 times out of 10 I will buy and store away. Trouble is,Ebay used to be my main source of offloading these items but now DESPISE the place so much havent listed anything on there for over a year so am stuck with a house that looks like an Army Surplus Shop.

    Easy answer would be to stop buying but Im hooked,its now in the blood.

    I think that's my trouble G91, I see something, it's cheap, I have to have it...regardless if I have 6 of the said item!! You've hit the nail on the head, it's in the blood!!!
