    So it is military issue and not civilian?

    It's the Transkei pattern; I have one exactly like it, right down to the label. Not sure if civilian or military, though.

    Perhas one of our resident African militaria wizards can shed some light on it. Smile

    Rich,My reckoning is that it is Military issue, made by a commercial manufacturer ,this would appear to be the case with Transkie kit. Mines made by Dux uniforms. Smile

    Legitimate Transkei Defense Forces issue. Many of the uniforms made for the various Homelands were from small commercial manufacturers. Few of them display what we would consider "proper" contract tags. Remember, the Homelands Defense Forces were quite small, numbering only a couple thousand personnel for each Homeland. As such, uniform contracts were awarded to all sorts of small companies.

    Cheers,

    Mike
