    I hate to trump your boot sale find but...

    Yesterday I was at the local tip and I saw an old lady putting something OD in and and I asked what it was... I told her I did a lot of camping and if she was chucking the items I'd gladly recycle them.

    Ended up that the items she was throwing were two OD poncho's (mint, with all fixing clips and even the green wool that you tend to find on the bottoms sometimes) and a green foul weather jacket!! In my size too lol.

    I don't know if the jacket is worth anything and I know the poncho's aren't really but I am well chuffed as second to MTP, my fave camo is OD! Razz

    Very nice things, I bought a Mk6 with DPM cover today for a tenner, couldn't knock the seller down, but I still saved about 8 quid in comparison to my surplus store prices!!

    I love car boots. I brought some ESS Advancer lenses with a bundle of other bits last week for a fiver and shamelessly auctioned the lenses on ebay and someone paid £18.00 inc postage for yellow and clear lenses in their pods...

    3 color desert jacket, US issue and late issue with the flat hip pockets, I'm guessing intended for USAF issue as US camo tends to be in the UK.
