    t-shirt question Dsc_0810


    I'm looking for a British Army T-shirt.
    I got a REMPLOY SL34a/739 contract T-shirt.
    According to Edward53's great research, the SL34 was manufactured between 1990 and 1994.
    Are you sure this T-shirt is from the 1st Gulf War ?

    I don't no much about dating by contract numbers but the Vest, Mans, PT, Olive before it was renamed the Vest, CS 95, Olive would've been the general service issued t-shirt of the time.

    The example pictured worn in theatre you've attached I would hazard has had the elastic in the sleeve cuffs stretched out or its given up the ghost from wear and being ironed to within an inch of its life hence the bagginess of the sleeves compared to your one that looks to have had little, if any, use.

    Thanks for the great answer.
    I didn't know the label name of the T-shirt before CS95, so it was very helpful.
    thank you very much.
