  1. Just to give everyone a break from PCS and "down and out" Im needing a bit of help identifying a smock I've got.

    The label reads:

    Smock Combat
    Size 2
    Nato Size 6070/9505

    Compton Sons Webb Ltd

    I'll get a picture in soon but any ideas? I realise it's probably one from 1994 but was curious.
  2. That's my ******* Sons Webb Ltd smock, you gloating tea leaf!

    Look carefully and you will see it says 'Private Compton'.

    (never fitted well tbh)
  3. Its a smock, I think.


  4. Just as well it's green and not desert DPM, otherwise you wouldn't of had a ******* clue.

  7. I will take a wild stab at this, it is a:

    Smock Combat
    Size 2
    Nato Size 6070/9505

    Compton Sons Webb Ltd.

  8. No; he asked a ******* stupid question, instantly had the piss ripped and tried to distract from his own stupidityness by attempted rudery.
  9. Not really. Trying to establish when it was on issue and putting up with your usual "pithy" remarks.
  10. Can't you tell?
  11. Oh, OK.


  12. Which I sense is what you will be taking for real if you continue to pursue this line of humourous responses.

  13. That would be a wild STAB in the dark, BB any comment
  14. Yes, its time for a Nice Cup Of Tea.
  15. It will be a 1968 pattern combat smock. Button cuffs, full poplin lining, bum flap at the back?
