    Recent finding. Am I right this is the "orange choco chip" uniform of the Egyptian Army? Looks legitim to me, the only odd thing is the commercial-looking washing instruction tag in the trousers (second pic.). The shirt has only a small white tag inside the neck, with some arabic script.

    I'd like to hear any kind of comments! Thanks!

    Sorry, just recently saw I misplaced the topic, I should post it to the "Middle-Eastern" section. Could any moderator do it please? Thanks!

    I've not seen Egyptians in 6 color desert. Perhaps it is for export or is just commercial. English on the label would be consistent with either, but probably not with domestic issue.

    Hi Steve!

    Thanks for re-placing the topic! Egyptian soldiers wearing this pattern:

    Well, well, well!! The pics all appear to be from the peace keeping mission in the Sudan. I wonder if they wore this uniform specifically for the mission? Are there any signs of stitching holes for badges?

    Hi Steve! No clue for badges - but as I noted (in private mail) the suit was used by a guy for fishing for a while. So either it is possible originally the suit was unissued (withouth patches), or the guy removed the velcro-backings and since then the washings removed the clues from the shirt.
