    Hi Folks,
    you don't hear a lot from me but today I have a question.You are probably aware of a camouflage raincoat used by Australian forces in Vietnam, the infamous "raincoat, psychological", a green raincoat with a black camouflage pattern printed on it. You can see it here: http://www.vietnamgear.com/gear_photo.aspx?img=AusRC.jpg
    I was just wandering when this item was taken out of service.
    Many thanks for the help.

    They were still on issue in the Infantry Battalion when I discharged (1988). I joined the ARES in 1991, and everything was DPCU.
