    I have developed a passion for South African and Homeland combat uniforms and webbing and my collection is growing at a steady pace Smile

    The first item I'm going to post here is a Transkei camouflage shirt, its cut is very similar to the Rhodesian shirts with scalloped flaps and it is printed in a variant of the lizard camouflage pattern. These shirts still come cheap but I found it well made and i'm even considering using this type of camouflage for hunting. The shirt was made by Sun.

    Now I'm waiting to receive a jacket and trousers in the same pattern.

    Here are the pictures:

    I have a pair of trousers and a matching jacket coming from the US that I bought last month and it will probably arrive next week.

    Brencan, do you have a pair of Namibian lizard trousers? I have some shirts coming from South Africa but did not found any matching trousers.

    Finally got myself a South African P70 pistol holster for my South African webbing and uniform collection!

    One peculiar detail with this pattern is that many items have press studs that engage in the press studs in the combat belt to fix the items in place.

    South African Police combat belt, this type of belt was also used by the South West Africa Police and namely the Koevoet. The belt had grommets that allowed a P70 yoke to be mounted on it.

    Thanks Loski!

    Here is a P61 variant of the left radio/magazine pouch with different fittings, do not know how it was fitted or the purpose of this configuration. What intrigues me is the hook at the back and the lack of C-hooks to fix the pouch in the belt.

    One of my newest acquisitions, thanks to Ripcord!

    South African Police camouflage cap, same model used by the Koevoet during the Border War, the camouflage is the so called 2nd SAP pattern in spite of the existence of 2nd type items predating the so called 1st type.

    South African Police 1st camouflage pattern bush hat.

    This is a bush hat made in the so-called 1st pattern camouflage that was issued to the South African Police at least since the early 70's with some items being dated 1970 and 1971.

    This type of camouflage was used by the SAP when deployed to Rhodesia and also in the early stages of the Border War.
