Interesting photos there, especially the Invasion of Cornwall - it looks like Bulgarian Splinter Pattern.
Where on earth did you get it?

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.

BGS used side pockets, we used everything we could lay our hands on in those days.
We had no reproductions and it was what we found in stores or made ourselves.
For reference we only had the Blandford unifoms of WW2 books (which I still have).

I've still got the Blandford book in my stash! It's amazing what you did with virtually nothing.
Vietnam was much easier :lol:
