  1. Recently acquired, US Army Support Group 1990's BDU, I'd suggest used during the drawing down of troops and material following the Gulf War.
  2. First off a modified SRT BDU. This modification has been well done, however there is no way of telling if this if for a military, federal or local SRT. There is a slight ghosting on the Velcro but with so many patches that it could be I have no way of narrowing the field. Secondly a Civilian Protective Uniform (CivPU) This is a put together, in order to show what it would have been like fully badged up, but only on the basis that the patches are velcro and can easily be taken off. However all records I have attached to this state this and I would never pass it off as
  3. I've never seen a US Government taped one before. Lovely find. Heres my contribution, a US Deprtment of Energy Handford Patrol BDU, again another one from a U.K. vintage store.
  4. Uniformcollector is that Steve Martin DBDU in your personal collection? If so thats an amazing item to have.
  5. The US Navy tabbed one is likely to be for a Navy corpsman (medic). The Navy traditionally supply the medics for USMC units. Maybe he is the medic for the Scout Sniper Platoon.
  6. Hi Ewart.  Thank you for reply for Captain Raynes suit information.  I am not a member of Legacy either.   Perhaps, I will join?  Here are two pictures of his suit which you may enjoy.

  7. Previously posted in the BDU thread here is a 'Safety' BDU. And a DOD Civilian ABU.
  8. Here is a starter for ten on the name, granted it's his wife obituary, however the dates mentioned seen about right and so does the middle initial: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/judy-raynes-obituary?pid=169808018 And here is what I believe will be a newspaper article about him, however I haven't signed up to the page to get the article. https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/10022623/
  9. Thanks for restarting this thread CAP. Some cracking uniforms here. I must dig mine out. I have a USPHS, a US Police SRT modified one and a US DOE one.
  10. And don't forget just because it is a 1993 contract date does not mean that it was produced in 1993. That's just the year that specific contract was started. I believe there was a thread on here or OEF/OIF forum that documented a garment with an early 2000's contract date but had a camouflage pattern that would have post-dated the contract by many years, some research by the poster lead to find that the contract had been modified to account for the change of camouflage. These are really nice BDU's, with the addition of the writing on the cuff. I like things like that, I'll
  11. The user that posted this collection hasn't logged into the forum for over 4 years.
  12. Did better than me. The google search I did, admittedly it was .co.uk search, bought back no results.
  13. Thanks for the explanation. I'll claim limey status and not knowing the progression times between different ranks, you guys have way more NCO ranks than we do.
  14. If it was legit could it be the Sgt Christopher Garcia seen on the manifest? I have some higher ranking Sgt BDU's/DCU's that I've really struggled to find bar a quick mention on together we served. This one doesn't appear to have been laundered much as you can still see the stitch marks on the lower of the jacket, but from the picture I can not see any discolouration. The stitching on the tapes, ranks and qualification badges seems ok from this angle.
