Rick: Don't know about WWII but into the 1950s and late 1960s it was not uncommon to find Canadian
officers wearing British pattern SD, summer & winter, especially the few who had previously served in
the British Army. The difference was usually obvious, there being a distinct difference in the shade of
khaki, the British pattern being darker. My memory is bolstered by a couple of colour photos, one of which
is hanging on the wall of my studio.
