    [QUOTE=Dave Burgess;216312]Depending on condition Bob, owt from £150 to £400.

    just bought another one from Latvia original no wings or DZ flashes. think I will make it a 15th Scottish para smock. I have 3 hunting Stewart flashes for it. some genuine parachute regiment and SAS gear is a great investment. I bought one earlier in the year from New Zealand.

    Anyone remember Ptes Bacon and Quick 1 Para? There was an armoury next door to the Bn barbers shop, Bacon and quick in charge. They were f***in about with a loaded Sten one afternoon and let a full mag go through the barbers shop (wooden) wall. 9 blokes sat in there, including CSM Support Coy, not a one was scratched. CSM Sp Coy was a c**t and they missed. Barber came to work rest of week with a f***in helmet on.

    They had a union too!On exercise with them in Germany,late 70's,hair nets and all,they had to be transported home for the weekend,or it would cost the British govt treble pay for them!We,meanwhile,were provided with limitless beer to drink round the camp fires while we waited for them to come back!

    Remember the krauts had their NFI charts. They would tick off each day of their service.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.
