    Here's my Rhodesian items.

    First is this odd shirt, which buttons all the way up.

    My Rhodesian Stuff - Bush jacket and unusual bush shirt Rhodes10

    loskop on newrhodesian.net says it's late war due to having no pocket pleats, and the button all the way at the top could mean police or something of that sort.

    Anyone know more?

    And here's my favorite item, the bush shirt:

    My Rhodesian Stuff - Bush jacket and unusual bush shirt Real10

    Name on the inside is "Willard". Other than that, no other info since the tag washed out.

    Very impressive.

    Great chest rigs and vests; great uniforms.

    Your odd shirt that you posted is a Guard Force shirt. The pockets without pleats are distinctive.

    Your Rhodesian display is legit ~ Thanks for sharing

    The Rhodesian camo pattern is making a resurgence in the US commercial tactical market..... Old is New.

    Even in Canada, some Rhodesian Brushstroke repro gear and modern kit is being made in the pattern.

    I personally don't have any Rhodie kit, but collections are always growing haha.

    I have only really started learning about Rhodesia over the last couple of years, and am deeply moved by the whole subject. Truly a very special time in military history.
