    Some of the best DPM colors ever made! Though packing up an Omani set I just sold I was reminded how much I love Omani!

    Was it common to have badging on these shirts? I bought one with a nametape on it, but so far I've not seen others that have more than that.

    Trops don't come up that often badged - they are more 'workwear' than parade gear I would say.

    This gurkha one of mine is only one of a few badged examples I've seen in RL.

    Good to know! I've had maybe a half dozen in my hands and have seen countless numbers on eBay and Forums like this. I've seen very few badged. And because condition tends to be faded it's not difficult to spot removed badging "shadows". So I have always thought of these as being rarely badged.

    What sorts of units do you have in your collections? Paras, Commandos, and Gurkhas don't surprise me that much as they tend to like to advertise their special status.
