    You have South African 32 Battalion camo. The green tinge is summer pattern, the brown tinge is winter pattern. In a nutshell 32 battalion came about as a result of the end of the Angolan Civil War where the South Africa took in many of the displaced African fighters and formed them into a unit solely for external ops. This unit was led by white officers and initially white NCOs. In a sense they were the South African 'foreign legion' where any losses could be 'deniable'.

    HAH! Do you know how many SA collectors just thought to themselves "if this guy doesn't know what that is he should bloody well give it to someone who does!!" Very Happy

    Common names for the two, if I have it right, are "Wet Season" for the greener type and "Dry Season" for the browner type.

    Now, of course, you have to try and make two matching sets out of the two pieces you have. Mike, Roan, or other SA collectors should be able to give you direction if you ask for it.
