    Very worn highly tailored jacket looks French cut not in my area but a number of Kiwis served in the Bush War so i may donate it to the Waiouru Museum one day.

    Hi,
    I have an almost identical jacket. I believe mine has a non working poacher type pouch on the back of the jacket.
    I would probably consider trading it, but the wife has claimed it.
    You have a real nice example of a customized combat jacket. Enjoy it.

    Be well, ripcord.

    I have also seen examples which had the bottom pockets removed completely and a waistband type feature (similar to the Brit Battledress or US 'Ike' jacket) added, also another which is similar to your example but with a band of elastication around the rear waist.

    Anyone who wants to see more Rhodie items ........?
    I posted my collection on the WAF in the international section many years ago.
    Saddly all pictures are long gone as they were on an old lap top that took a nose dive or I would post them here also.

    A great bunch of stuff! I don't have many Rhodie items, but I do have one of the zippered jump suits. Funny enough I was just doing some research on it this weekend.

    Post by ripcord Sat Feb 09, 2013 2:29 pm

    Hey there, Bousque,

    I know it`s not a Zimbabwe wing, but I am wondering what you mean by copy ?

    Copy of what ?
