    This is a rare beastie indeed. I've seen 2 with my own eyes and one other in 30+ years. There's a few photos of them in Geraghty's Pictorial History of The SAS ......

    Nice , I've not seen one of these but plenty of ones in DPM. I have an unissued 1942 one in drab which I found about 10 years ago on a carboot sale , I suspect it was gulf reissue.

    Yep, the DPM ones are relatively more common. I had a green one back in the day and after re-entering the civillian world, wore it out working on construction sites in the days before hi-viz ....... Had a few of the '63 DPM ones (although i don't right now and would like to get one again in a decent size ....) and I've had morre WW2 cammo ones (and Denisons) than i can count - a couple of dozen at least. I have one mint sand one in a size 4 left in that attic. I used to use them for hiking and biking but they are now too rare and expensive to waste like that nowadays.
