    Another piece from Jeremy. 3 Para/16 Air Assault Bde DDPM shirt. I'm pretty sure this was worn in the Middle East, it's got tears and set-in dirt here and there. It's too salty to be parade dress, which makes me like it that much more! Laughing

    Close-up of DZ flash and para wings. These look different from others I've seen. Is it possible they are theatre made?

    Interesting subdued Union Jack and desert coloured 16 Air Assault Bde patches. Note velcro for attachment of IR glint tape.

    Here's a photo I found of a group with these same patches on operations, not sure if it's Iraq or Afghanistan though.
