    3RD PATTERN DPDU's DPDUAATTIVblanked
    This set was used by AATTI-V Capt MW in 2005.
    The upper pockets have been modified from button to velcro closure.
    Note the rare ball cap and AATT-V sleeve patch.
    He gave me what you see here along with many other items.

    This tread has been quite dormant..And rightly so; these uniforms have regrettably  long been obsolete.

    This week, I found another interesting MK3 uniform.  This one was probably worn once or twice, laundered once, and shoved into a duffle bag where it acquired some wrinkles..

     Last photo shows what I believe to be laundry tags ..  Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Also have a question about rank patching for this uniform.  Have seen tubular epaulette rank insignia on some of these uniforms and small square rank patches sown onto sleeves of others.

    Is this correct ?

    Maybe there was the brit style variation of non officer ranks on sleeves and officers on the shoulders?

    Yes, Alex, that makes sense.

    Was wondering whether enlisted tubular epaulette rank insignia was ever authorised for this uniform.

    Would make sense if they started using them on the Land 125 stuff with the chest rank system.
