    Hey guys just joined the forum, I have been collecting Australian DPDU uniforms and insignia worn in Iraq/Afghanistan now for about a month or so. Ive been collecting Australian uniforms, Insignia and equiptment from ww2 Korea Borneo and Vietnam plus the interfet mission to East Timor in 1999 for about 16 or 17 years and thought It would be good for a change, anyway I thought I would share with you what I have so far, I will post more as I get it, enjoy Very Happy

    First up is 2 Land125 shirts, I have taken the name tapes off for the pics as Im not sure If the orignal owners want their name on the net, I have the trousers too but we have all seen the pants lol....

    Yeah the small budget sucks lol, but atleast the patches are cheap enough at the moment, just have to watch out for fakes, Ive been getting mine off either returned diggers themselves or a guy I know whois a huge collector that has heaps of mates deployed o/s in the ADF, and If you are after any DPDUs I know a guy who has a few a reasonable prices, and I can probably sell you a set of DPCUs I know I have a spare shirt and maybe some trousers would have to look but I wouldnt want much for them.

    I will keep that in mind for sure, thanks!

    AUSCAM is a lot harder and/or more expensive to find here in the US...sometimes you come across a good deal, but they are far and few between. It sure does help have guys coming back and forth from the Mid East with extra gear they want to get rid of

    Lucas, congrats on this neat collection.
    I especially envy you for the RTF patch (without the rotation #). That's missing in my collection.

    I love the Australian desert cams! Very nice, Lucas. I've yet to come across any though.

    I really like the more "yellow" looking variant of the pattern, not sure what series/issue that is, though. I guess it's closest to the 2nd shirt you have posted.

    I know nothing about Auscam variants, I just really like the pattern. Laughing

    Very nice!! I'm in need of some badging for a Land125 desert jacket if you're into trading. I don't have any spare Aussie kit, though. Also, my Land125 shirt came without any buttons Sad

    Hi mate, theyre both series 3 DPDU pattern but just in the new land125 cut, Unfortunately the tags are washed out on both, but the trousers which came with each shirt are both 2006 dated, so Im guessing the shirts are the same, as they were issued together, And I agree the series 3 cam (yellow background) even though the most common of them all is the nicest looking.

    Also thought Id chuck this up as well, a set of painted chest webbing that came with the OWBG(W)4 shirt, belonged to a 2/14th LH member, since the side pouches have been removed and its basically just the 3 mag pouches on the front, Im guessing that he only had a need for these as he was in ASLAVs and the other gear would be kept in the vehical..

    Series 3, that's it. I can never remember the versions of the pattern without first consulting a reference website. lol!
    Thanks for clarifying it for me.
