    That last pic is not an issue item but was made up by a tailor for an individual serving overseas.The new UBACS is exactly the same cut as the new BA PCS UBACS save for the body is in IP-DPM rather than plain OG.

    The SD No 1 shirts were clearly visible underneath the overalls.

    We've (FCA/RDF) have come a long way since, thankfully
    One even has a red shirt. Decided to scan the photo and attach.

    It was a requirement to be worn by shooting teams, before the Combat dress was introduced.
    They gave us working dress thinking that would keep us happy...

    Ho Chi Minh Jacket.

    I hated that thing, it just did NOT fit no matter who you were! If you took 3 guys with 3 different jacket sizes and disassembled them, you might have been able to make 1 jacket that kinda fit one of them.
