and now the M.41 jump smock modified on 1942: (courtesy IWM)


There are basically two colours overprinted on the light grey-green background,
very different from the drawing of the M.29 camo cloth.
During the RSI period, all the camo and grey para jump smocks were
used if available, but a lot of them have been made with the not perspirable cloth used on the
camo shelter halves M.29.These were not suited for combat purposes, in fact you can imagine
what a sweat while fighting and runnig!Generally three colours on a reddish background.
