Response to Canadian DPM Jump Smock
While we wait for Ed :) Here's my tenative info:
a) The airborne jacket appears to have been adopted in 1970 or 72 with the activation of the SSF. At least that that's what I remember reading through the back issues of Sentinel. What I'm curious about is if the DPM patern is a variant of the original British or is the British pattern
b) Correct the photos I've seen had only the airborne/SSF soldiers wearing them
c) Sorry don't know the answer but wouldn't it've been declared obselete with the adoption of the toute-arme camo?
