Digressing once again. Do the current members of HM forces still have blankets and sheets or is it all duvets these days?

Can't really make a bed pack out of duvets though can you? Shocked

Yeah, would be difficult! Rolling Eyes

Another digression: - is it possible to amend the thread title so that "Camouflage" is spelled correctly?

Edit:
Spooky, it's changed Shocked

Oh I don't know though.
The drill pigs we had would've had the duvet cover starched and the whole thing squared off somehow.
We had to have our spare (leather) bootlaces coiled, ironed flat and bulled, I kid you not. Them buggers were capable of anything !

Glad you said that. The whole thing reads somewhat differently now!! I'm as guilty as every one else for reading that one wrong!!!

Allowing for the fact Canadian English syntax and British English syntax can be different (there are times I cannot follow what on earth someone has written; I recognize the words of course but they make no sense at all!), one wonders just what you lot assume about me now! Oh well....shrug.... scratch

In this instance, "the boyfriend" was clearly read as synonomous with "the wife" or something, leading to the assumption it was my boyfriend who arrived home early rather than someone else's. Huh. See if I share any "personal" stories again !! LOL LOL

Who remembers the DPM Combat Cap? Not that I remember ever wearing it!



Or the Green 1960 Pattern one for that matter.

Then of course there was the detachable hood as well.

Never knew there was a grot green version of it. I did see some members of other units wearing them (the DPM ones) on Scheme in the '70s, but I was never issued with one. Mind you I don't think I would ever have worn it if I had.

The '60 Pattern Green 'Cap Cold Weather' was in good quality windproof cotton, wool lined ear flaps, leather band in the crown, waterproof lined in the top. It is also very well made. The jackets and trousers followed in the same style. Based on the '53 Pattern Combats designed for the Korean War where the Green Parker with Tail was the Outer Layer.

Who remembers the DPM 'Cap Cold Weather' for use in Norway, and places 'Brass Monkey'?

The cap doesn't look so bad to me. A tad baseball-ish perhaps but then most caps tend to be....not sure what it'd look like with ear flaps down, though. A bit dorky is my guess :-)

My first DPM's were heavy duty 80s style with sewn doewn flat pockets and very large epaulettes. It was great, pressed nicely and was really comfy.

The second set I was issued was an odd colour, had large puffy pockets, would never hold a crease and fell apart - this batch, and others like it, were supplied by manufacturers in PRC - China....

Fast forward - CS95 - Combat Soldier 95. The uniform is a vast improvement. Similar in style to tropical DPMs it is very comfy, keeps creases like the old lightweights did, reduces what you need in your locker.

I was issued 5 sets, trousers and shirt along with 2 Jackets. Barrack dress trousers - gone, a thing of the past - they were horrible and not sad to see the rear end of them however, lightweights are now worn in lieu of barrack dress......

The new DPM is meant to replace all DPM, desert, tropical and temperate and the colour scheme is a little more lighter than previous. The quality is supreme and so comfortable.

We are starting to rival the yanks now with equipment, quality, quantity and utility.
