Old ddpm

#1
As a cadet we do use a lot of desert DPM kit. If you have any spare please do PM me or reply here if you wish. Of course we do use temperate DPM more but i am led to believe there is a lot of spare DDPM kit that I'd not in demand so is hard to sell/surplus.
Cheers

You will be soon getting it on issue as the temperate DPM stocks decline, and we wait for MTP to be issued late 2012.

No doubt we will see ACF cadets and adults on parade wearing all 3 patterns. An MTP shirt, Desert DPM trousers and a temperate DPM rank slide.

CdtQM fail!

When playing enemy we use it, some people also get ddpm cheap then spray it, when wearing it it's very surprising where in the uk it is more suitable than temperate as temperate is actually a very dark camouflage (not an expert but I think the added shadows cause this so you get twice the shadows than the area around you? Free to be corrected)

You use it when playing. End of.

What? (10 letters)
I was told or read that the black marks on temperate DPM is (simulated?) shadow. Then of course you get the actual shadow from the objects around so so surely you have twice the shadow. Hence temperate Dpm things look very dark?

If your stood in the middle of a crown green bowling lawn, then yes you would look a tad out of place.
If you apply field craft properly, keeping in mind all the ******* S's, then its effective for where its designed.

Agreed, but i just ment the majority of places it seems to be too dark for and a ighter camo would be more appropiate, despite applying local cam etc. but as said before i'm not an expert and these are only personal conclusions and ready to be amended/corected if needed

Wait until it gets dark, then you'll understand.

For one brief period of time until the appropriate stores were acquired, I wore DPM trousers, shirt OD, with MTP rank slides. In fact, when DPM rank slides did turn up, I only got one for my right shoulder.

Judging by every single ACF parade I've ever seen, maybe you should be putting some effort into getting hold of some trouser twists so the poor buggers dont keep tucking their trousers into their boots.

Twisters are compulsory at my detachment so we all have them. Kit doesn't seem too bad but we could do with webbing and smocks as for some reason a lot of recruits still have no smock and parents are reluctant to spend money on webbing when it's not absolutely necessary (we have old 58 in stores which is in poor state) I know we are not a particularly poor detachment by cadet standards but we certainly are not near fully stocked or resourced. We are supposed to get issued or be able to request plce through the system but that never happens. I thoroughly understand we are on a low budget but that's why charity is needed.
In a separate note we had an adult work with us for a while from the engineers as we are based at chilwell, he once commented that if we were badged engineers the regulars next door would be much more eager to help out (we are currently Rifles), so if your local detachment shared your badge would you be more inclined to help out?
