      I didn’t know about the use of pea cammo post war outside of Europe.

      Captured stock pile used?
      I collect photos of beer drinkers in the Third Reich.

              Very real... Some of these South Koreans Commandos of “Task Force Kirkland” were equipped with German “44 Dot” tunics,
              which came from UN inventories, SS sleeve eagles still in place! (taken unissued from depots by the US in WW2).
              Note the late war "Graublau" einheitz knopfen (blue/gray pebbled buttons) still in place.

                First time for me; I find it amazing that the sleeve eagle still remains…! Puts your "untouched battle worn dot tunic" definitely in a completely different light :-)

                        Those images are Indo China French related and most
                        Jungle tunics were made of left over German materials
                        and zelt (tent)...So field tailor made...(company level),
                        (by the French) Not mass produced war time..
                        The Korean commandoes on the other hand wear bonestock mass produced M44 DOT uniforms.

                            I'm interested in this subject from a purely logistical standpoint. How did the appropriate Korean military procurement department have the opportunity to acquire new old stock dot pattern tunics? Was there a catalog issued by some international military surplus dealer that had significant quantities of these tunics such that some foreign military government could buy sufficient quantities in an assortment of sizes to clothe some element of their military? What time period are we talking about? I find it interesting too that the sleeve eagles would still be in place. I would have thought the stigma of the swastika, especially not all that long after the war and with south Korea being allied to the U.S. might have raised some eyebrows. Weren't most tunics de-Nazified after the war? Were other countries offered these camouflage uniforms as well? In any case it is an interesting topic.
