Normally used for the Denison Smocks worn by Regiments of the Parachute Pilot, Air Landing, Air Observation, Commando, Special Operations Executive and other airborne units in WWII. it was equally useful for camouflage and as a windproof garment that provided a method of carrying ammunition or equipment.

This Patterned material continued to be used until the mid-70’s by the Royal Marines and the Parachute Regiment and was popular with Korean troops. Little had changed from the wartime issue.
