    Found these quite early DPM Waterproof trousers, now to see which of the 2 early smocks it's supposed to with. Going by the NSN it's probably the one with velcro armcuffs, though this is dated during the Falklands war,
    and I'm not sure the one with the velcro cuffs was already made like that back then.

    Some wool wristlets, British NSN, no contractcode that could tell me if it's Dutch marine corps or British issue.

    The right compressionbag is probably British, for a jungle sleeping bag I think.

    And then a green bag that I have yet to ID, but the materials used look quite a bit like green PLCE stuff.

    Found a very weird Arktis chestrig I hadn't seen before, for Minimi box magazines, and it has some utility pouches at both sides that seem to follow the shape of the American modular type canteenpouches.
    I'm curious when this type was actually produced, as it doesn't seem to appear in several Arktis catalogues I have seen before.
    These rigs have seen use as private-purchase items in at least the Dutch army, maybe others too.

    And a late type PLCE90 utility pouch, as made in 1991 with the square plate buckles and 2nd type beltloops.

    And now a mistakenly bought Tantalus windproof smock has arrived and I actually quite like it, with it's weird details and all.
    I was bidding on anothre items from the same seller and bid on this as an extra, then the other items went far too high and I got only this one haha.

    Long ago I found that reversible green/white rainjacket, and now I finally found pants, and when I went to get the lot of stuff it was in, it turned out there was a smock in there too, absolutely new condition too!
    Looking at the contractcodes the smock is a quite early one from the late 80's, and the trousers should be dated about 1983.

    Have to say I'm pretty happy with how that turned out.
    Now to see what I'll do with the previous smock.

    More stuff again!

    DPM vest made by Magro, either late 80's or early 90's. The only pics I've seen of such vests being used were from 1993 in Bosnia but I keep reading that they were quite popular back then.
    The buttpouch and maybe the inner pockets might have been added later, which also seems to have been common practice with such vests.

    And then a Desert belt, DPM hippad made by SASS and some white wristlets arrived. (Dutch marine corps shouldertitle unrelated)

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 6 Dsc02230


    And a Tropical DPM set from 2 different auctions, with the same contractcode, it's a type that was made in the late 80's and at least 1990, which is when this contractcode dates it.
    It has the same shape as the earliest type from the 70's, but an extra armpocket for an FFD, an updated DPM pattern, and darkgreen buttons.

    Thanks, I'm quite happy that one popped up in it's complete state, others I've seen before on ebay and such were all missing parts.

    Stay tuned for some more rare stuff though, I just got back from vacation and have some mail to open and take pics off, some PLCE85 stuff among them Wink

    Had some time to take pics of my new stuff just now, and here's the British part of it.

    First this khaki NI type chestrig, which has been Dutch used in Afghanistan and might actually be Afghan made. Name and seril obscured for reasons.

    Unknown vest, maybe Comkit? Padded behind the magazinepouches on the chest, PLCE Bergen sidepouch attached to the back with the top 2 buckles and compression straps of the vest itself.

    Arktis DPM Camelbak and legholster, jungle knife / machete sheath (I now have the round and this angled bottom type sheath and a Martindale jungle knife on the way, time to test which it actually fits),
    ISPL radiopouch (no idea what equipment this is from).

    Reproduction Falklands era SBS chestrig, Rusty is the person who commisioned the production of a number of such rigs and the seller. Check out Rusty's Rigs on facebook, he has a lot of interesting rigs
    and corresponding research.

    2 PLCE85 trial magazinepouches, I already has a same side of the early pouch on the left but this was included in a pile of stuff, but I did not have the one on the right with the square flap before!
    So now I do have a left and right hand pouch, but different types. The left one in these pics will be for trade against other PLCE85 stuff I don't have yet.

    And 2 parts I expected would take years to turn up, the PLCE85 suspenders and belt!

    1 More item this week, the Martindale jungle knife to go with at least the sheath with the round bottom edge. I can't seem to fit it into the angled one.

    Another Arktis smock turned up, a B210 Windproof smock that has been modified with the addition of an armpouch with velcro, elbow reinforcements and pouches round the back.

    And a United Shield International MCH helmet which has been camo spraypainted and Dutch used.

    New gear again, first GS combat gloves, early type with the knucklepad. Rest is unrelated.

    And a weird Arktis vest I didn't know yet, maybe a custom order, who knows.

    And an A-frame Bergen pack which is probably dated 1957, a little hard to tell what that stamp says.

    Thanks! I couldn't let this one go, I've wanted one for quite some time and like the postwar ones more than the wartime type.

    And 2 new additions today. A P83 trials PLCE canteenpouch, and a P85 trials PLCE canteenpouch.
    I actually bought the P85 one named as a utility pouch, but when it came in I could see it better and turned out to be a canteenpouch too, so now I still need a utilitypouch.
    Hopefuly a utilitypouch, shovelpouch and gasmaskbag will turn up sometime so it becomes more of a set.

    I come across the wartime rucksacks fairly often over here, but have never seen a postwar example. I do have a nice Belgian one too, in NOS condition, as well as an Italian version, which is pretty well used.

    Yes, it is a less faithful copy, but one that was clearly inspired by the British packs.

    Oh my knowledge of Italian stuff is limited so I've never picked up on that.
