You lucky dog. One does not see that often, especially in that condition, and considering that they were worn through the end of the Algerian War.

Dare I ask how much?

An other amazing find Owen!!! I agree with you one of the rarest camo uniforms, cheaper than a Tarnjacke but from far scarcer!

Cheers

Used by the Commandos de Marine from the late '40's until about '62 (not sure if they used it after then). Indochina and Algerian Wars.

It's a stunning pattern influenced by the last pattern of the war from Germany
The tans and reds of Lieber
I believe there are 3 different prints of this fabric.

I was introduced to this pattern here on Waf and since then had seen only a mere handful known to exist.
It's truly one of the 20th century's artful Cammo treasures

In order to present Owen' smock in situation here is few pictures from "Commando Montfort" from 1951 till 1954 in Indochina.
