    Even though I do not collect Indonesian uniforms any more, I am still interested in them.  Thanks for the comprehensive documentation!  Now that I know many of your examples came from Ken Conboy that explains why your collection is so broad and high quality!

    I looked through my reference pictures for anything unusual that might add to this thread.  Here is another example of #25 Kodam XII/Tanjungpura Unique Camouflage. Maybe the badging will be of help to you:

    You are welcome! Unfortunately, I do not have much to contribute to this discussion. Even when I had many Indonesian uniforms I did not know much about them.

    Please let me know if you known anyone that willing sell that camo, I've only seen three so far! haha

    Noted Wink

    The picture I posted is, I think, from a collector who died many years ago. His collection is long since sold off. The picture was sent to me in 2002.

    Hi, thanks! I only have one paramilitary-political group pattern, it's not my forte.

    And adding a caption to the post shared by Steve,
    The number 3 picture is from Forum Komunikasi Putra-Putri Purnawirawan (FKPPI), the old political group print.

    This is mine, an early print of Pemuda Panca Marga (“PPM”) group.
    Since I live in Indonesia, it's quite "sensitive" for me to own political camouflage.

    Hello Sir! i didn't notice until now, the right one is slanted pocket. Maybe a newer version (mine is dated 2013). I will try to capture a newer version if there are any "hand-signature" and "mosquito" printed into the camouflage.
