    My collection.

    Post by aussie digger on Sun Jun 03, 2012 2:56 am

    Hi All,

    Well the better half left for the US today and with her went allot of my DCUs to save money and hassle when I move to the states.
    So this inspired me to start photographing my collection so I can post it up. Il start with the US gear first. You might notice I have a soft spot for medical related gear being a medic myself. Its just a shame its reasonably hard to find.

    This is the most heavily starched shirt iv ever seen. I was worried it would crack when I unfolded it! You can see where he has removed senior NCO insignia after I guess he became a PA.

    Well thats all of the army DCUs for now so il go on with something slightly different.

    A complete set of CCU with standard and reversed 2nd ID insignia. Unfortunately not sure if the SSI are original to the coat (the joys of velcro)

    Another set of CCU. Again not certain if the SSI is original but found a 25th ID crumpled up in a trouser pocket so its possible.

    Iv got a few originally patched ACUs but im guessing no one will be too interested in those so heres a nice worn set of UCP-D. I had to add the patches myself for display.

    Another nice worn 6 colour. Its hard to read but looks to be 81 dated. This is the last of the Army for now. Will have to go to Navy next. And thank you! I try to stick to nicer complete coats.
