The photo identifies the soldiers as students from the Pathfinder Course in 1980, presumably at Fort Benning. There's a mixture of OG-107 fatigues, ERDL jungle fatigues and RDL RDF fatigues. The soldier on the left in the back row looks Australian. Also, it looks like the soldier on the left in the front row is wearing a 3rd Marine Division combat patch.

don't think he's Australian, we don't wear ribbon/medals on fatigues and also those wings aren't in teh right place. Maybe Canadian?

Always looking for Vietnam War US Special Forces/MACV-SOG jungle shirts/uniforms and OG107 Shirts/uniforms.

There are some nice pics from early bright star exercises in Egypt. I love the 1983 ranger combination of OD jungle uniforms and camo painted burlap covered m1 helmet.

 

And as weird it may sound a Delta force pic came out these days showing guys training in jungle last year with one of them wearing erdl... Pretty sure it was worn for giggles but funny nonetheless https://i.redd.it/62g0yli8ff121.jpg

Interesting variety of uniforms - the guy front and center appears to be wearing a modified BDU.

A Staff Sergent one of the Reserve Special Forces Groups at a Drill at Ft Meade Maryland, 1965 wearing the 1st Pattern Coat, probably of the old 11th Special Forces Group, he may not be Flashed, as one more of them are only wearing the DI only one we see with a Candy Stripe.

Material is Cotton Sateen as the fatigues of the day were made out of, I think there was another topic on these, let me check.

Yes mate, this was a part of the 69 trials as it has the ghost of the triangular armoured patch on the left arm. The tag behind the pocket is present but it's made from Muslim/cheese cloth and long since washed away with the fait black text just about able to see but can't read.
