Beogam or Tiger Stripe thread?

I chose Beogam

 

Great photo!

 

I Like the wide variety of gear and uniforms has been used.

Interesting Beo Gam image of the lady. Especially with the Rnager insignia. I will dig out some of my duck hunter / beo gam to display on this forum

Here's a link to a Craigslist ad I found this morning. I'm assuming all are hunting suits because they're labeled VN and so cheap but thought someone here may want them anyway. I'd think anyone knowledgeable enough to title them this way at 10 bucks each also knows the rest of the story. He's only three hours from me but I'm going with my gut this time.

Picked this up at a vintage clothing store about a month back. Looks like it was a straight pocket utility type shirt that had been tailored through the body as well as having the chest pockets slanted.

Nice faded twill CIB. Sleeves were cut off at some point to make for a cooler wear on patrol or around camp?
