    Unknown dpm smock

    I posted this originally under NZ because I thought it was similar to another NZ smock, but I'm told it definitely isn't that so I'm posting it here. Link to original post:

    This smock turned up with a surplus dealer in the UK. It's been suggested that it could be made to order, but it doesn't resemble any issue kit, nor does it seem a lot better in any way. It's also been suggested that it's a commercial item, but you would expect some sort of label, if only a size. Since trials pieces usually have labels too, I'm stumped. This doesn't even have a size in it (it is small to medium, about a UK size 2).

    I would love to know what this is. It didn't cost much so it won't hurt me either way, but I'm curious. Anyone?

    Jacket looks the son of an M65 and a p68 having a drunken fling ??

    Print is not UK issue or even colonial use for that matter , cut is p68 but with M65 fastening and styled zipper.

    It looks a copy of something but I'm not saying civvi.

    Good point, I thought at first this was UK dpm but side by side I can see that the shapes are different.
