Funny that. I noticed some chogies in a humvee, wearing desert NBC suit (First time I've ever seen such stuff) and having osprey on top. They were having a wee bit of a barney with the local scrapyard/dump owner. Arabic, but the tone was less that friendly.
Seen some civvies wearing it too, but in the dark blue covers.
I really think the powers that be are getting even madder by the hour.
As a reseller most of the kit I see at suppliers warehouse they're is loads, any squaddie going they're would have a field day, that goes for osprey covers and desert NBC, a desert NBC kit brand new is a couple of quid, like, not even a fiver,
Iraqi SF wear all sorts of British and Yank kit.
There was one guy in Basra wearing full British desert DPM, Osprey, camelbak and kneepads. The only thing he had on that wasn't British was his helmet. He'd bought it all from someone on the market.
