COMBATS AND WEBBING NEEDED - KOREAN, 60 pat, Trials CS 95.

#1
I am searching for the 60 pattern combats in Green and DPM (both same style not the 69 pat DPM) or the Korean era green combats and CW parkas, hats as well. Any 72 pat webbing (Nylon 58 pat). Also any TRIALS PLCE webbing (press studded sort) and CS 95 clothing. Any size or condition considered. PM me with details and to discuss payment.

Cheers kids.

Genl. M,

But why??? I have some of what you speak in my loft (though if you can define the diff between 68 adn 69 pattern DPM I'd appreciate it). But most importantly why do you want it???

I think the 68 to 69 had a different collasr. One had sone waffle stitching on it. No joke!

As you seem to be a spotter about combats, can you please tell me the "real" use of that small "Right side , groin area pocket" on the old
pre CS95 DPM trousers.

Yes, the green combats and first DPMs had stitching on the collar, elbow patches, and bellows lower pockets. They were also very well made out of heavy cotton.

The pocket you speak of was for a FFD, and was introduced to combat trousers in 1937 with the advent of Battledress. Prior to this the FFD had been carried in a pocket on the inside lower part of the tunic.

Why not. I collect British uniforms from 1900-present. The combats after battledress were used as "work" wear by civvies so they are hard to find and noone really collects them. The korean stuff is difficult to get hold of and an under collected area of British military history.

I know I was always told it was for the FFd but believe its original purpose was for the Officer and Gentleman to keep his FOB watch in. Before we used to obtain the old GS watch .

I may be able to get you some of the old issue combats in Olive, If I remember the local Cadet unit has some in its stores! I will ask about....

If you want / need to see all the different issue clothing and equipment that has been issued since WW2, the RM at Lympstone Commando Training depot, have kept a set all all equipment that has ever been issued in their stores :)

As well as 72 Pattern, they also have some very strange Battlevests, as well as many different sets of uniform.

I have a green resi bag that is PLCE, that looks different from the trials plce that we took to the Falklands in 85. I had a green olive 1960's jacket that I still wish I hadnt swopped!

Any joy you lot?

I'm still looking for old stuff.

'37 pattern especially. First pattern ammo pouches and spade carrier. Earlier dates the better. "L" straps with the patent number on the brass hooks even if the date not visible needed.

Cheers.
GM
