    i have a dpm problem

    Post by toasty13 on Tue Jan 03, 2012 11:34 am

    so i don't usually care about dpm because so many use it and the surplus is great but this piece had me baffled on how it has no tags, well it does but its just like a strip of the uniform with no writing on it. this is the only identifying marks on it. Any reason why? is there something im missing?

    you probably bought it thinking it's UK army...But apparently the tag refers to Kenya Army ;



    others pictures on google when you earch "kenya army" :

    Now, is this a bad deal or not ?...I don't know and I don't think. It's probably less collected in comparison with UK stuff, but they are also (probably) less common...so maybe you finaly did a beter deal !... Wink There're certainly collectors of uniforms and camo (like Philip) who can be interested in it if you only collect US and UK stuff.

    Kenya is a former British colony.
