Hi

 

Here a set of ARVN Beogam that was used almost by Rangers and some of the ARVN Seals. The cut is like ARVN Fatigue: padded shoulders, elbows and knees. The shirt has 2 squared pockets, the pants 4 pockets. No QM Marking

Generally the VN SEALs wore all kinds of stuff, mostly ERDL in US and VN variations and tigers, maybe early on they might have worn these but I always equate this pattern with early war years.

DEAR COPRAN AND SPIKE

 

YOUR ARVN CUT BEOGAM SET, IS EXACTLY THE SAME WORN BY THIS VN SEAL

ON YOUR PHOTOS

THIS TYPE OF SET IS NOT VERY EARLY PRODUCT LIKE CISO MADE

MAYBE THIS TYPE IS PRODUCT IN MIDDLE TIME OF WAR (near 1968)

BUT IS HARD FIND SET

IN THE SAME TWILL AND CONFECTION YOU CAN FIND 3 DIFFERENTS CUTS SHIRTS

AND 3 FOR THE TROUSERS TOO

SPIKE,

YOU ARE IN TRUE IS NOT VERY CURRENT TO SEE SOME VN SEALs WHO S WEAR

BEOGAM ,TIGER AND ERDL IS MOST CURRENT

 

REGARDS JEROME

 

PS YOU CAN SEE DIFFERENT CUT ON THE PICS

Great uniforms and pictures. There is a site by John O'Connor that has information on begaom patterns. Type in Indochina Militaria on internert

explorer and go to research and information (Upper right).

Hi,

 

Here are pics of my US Cut Beo Gam Cam set. The main difference with the Asian CIDG pattern-cut is:

- Small pocket on the sleeve (No pocket on the Asian Cut)

- Zip Fly (YKK for my pants) instead of button fly

- The pattern has some differences also

 

Cheers

This is an absolutely outstanding collection of duck hunter camo being shown here! An incredible variety that I for one never even new existed.

As an aside, some of this type of camo is downright strange and certainly would not present a very effective camouflage in any terrain I can think of. Those swim trucks are one example that may actually defeat any camo attempt!

Please show us more.

beogam,

I found this beret on ebay and this pattern looks to me to be very similar, if not exactly the same, to the beret you have pictured with the shorts. This is NOT a Vietnam pattern of tiger stripe, this is a commercial pattern. This beret pictured here is one of the fakes coming out of Vietnam today.

The beret on the guy in the pic doesn't look fake to me, hey, I could be wrong, it just looks like the pattern on your beret looks sorta like the commercial stuff. I have probably had every type of tiger stripe at one time or another in the last 20 years so I'm not new. It looked weird to me that's all, don't take it personal. It wouldn't be the first time I was wrong.....
