    Just bought a set of Greek BD and Trs and as Ive had loads over the years and there seems to be a lot of difference in styles,colours etc does anybody please have any info on these,EG what different types there were,when first introduced and when phased out.

    The British BD eveolved quite a bit from the 37,40,46,47 and finally the 49 pattern so wonder if the Greeks did similar?

    Many Thanks.

    I noticed there are 2 types: A very dark brown and a more green kind that is closer to the Canadian colors.

    Dark Brown:

    A seller at my local swap meet tends to get the greener ones. I'll record a few dates next time I go there, but I remember they were all very late 50's - 60's.

    I've also only encountered one pair of pants and they did not have the large side pocket at all despite having a similar stamp as the battledress top and being made of largely the same wool material.

    Great pics to show the colour differences. I have had various Blouses and Trs in varying shades of brown and green with the latest blouse Ive recently bought beeing the greenest by far. Also seen but never bought,a blouse type with exposed pocket flap buttons and had a few blouses in "smooth" not hairy/rough/coarse material.
