    This is one of my newest uniform acqusitions. It is a badged PEruvian Guardia Civil Policia Aerea uniform. The uniform is of South Korean origin and has a Samsung tag sewn into the bottom part of the shirt. It also has F.A.P. collar devices and two pins on the chest. I have identified the one pin as being a pin awarded/given to the soldier for his participation in Operation Snowcap. I belive this uniform dates from the 1987 -1989 time period.

    Interesting ... I picked up a virtually identical uniform sans patches at a local surplus store years ago - same pattern, cut, buttons et al. Looks like the Koreans exported this pattern everywhere. I have seen Ethiopians, Iraqis, Palestinians and Nicaraguans wearing the same 'noodle' pattern.

    Funny you should mention that Filupe. I have two other sets in my collection. One set came out of Guatemala and the other set came out of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian set has the hammer and sickle collar tabs. Supposedly was captured in Rhodesia back in the late 70's. All I can tell you is that the original owner of the uniform probably didn't make it back to his home. It has bullet holes and shrapnel holes EVERYWHERE on it. Has quite a few blood stains as well.
