Lasttye. I have read what was said earlier in the thread about jungle greens,i saw the picture that you put up of yours.I just dont remember that the ones worn here in Bristol were the same (and that could be me remembering wrong),one thing i definitely remember was they were known as "army greens" here (that doesnt mean that they were different trousers though). Yes i remember seeing lads wearing the green lightweights (like Basset is wearing in the picture with Buttons) i also remember them wearing DPM camo trousers,as you say this was late 70s early 80s.
Every area had their own Army Surplus shop and I am sure they had their own supply sources, around our way we had a mate who worked in one after school..word got around about a batch of Greens two days later sold out.
The next batch that came in may be different from the last, I am sure I had a few pairs that only had one rear flapped pocket.
The British Army did issue a OG Jungle Green in the early 60s, and they had a thigh pocket and cross over belt , when I was in the Army years later they was well sought after as ally kit, I did put a pic of me in the Army wearing a pair.
Again its about what went on local,
Brill stuff coming on here about the Bristol scene and local herberts,
