Canadian Army Forces 80-х
 
Good afternoon:).
At once I am sorry for my English, used the translator.
I from Russia, the city of St.-Petersburg.
We with friends have formed a team which is engaged in a generalized character of Armed forces of the Canadian army for 1960-2000
Very much to be pleasant to us the olive uniform which was used in army of Canada to CadPad.
We buy the form on Ebay.
Whether prompt there are commands which are engaged in the given theme?

This picture was taken about a month ago. The gear is pretty close to what I was wearing in 87-89. The rifle is not correct for the time period. I'll see if I can get you something better in the near future.

Привет, сожалея о моем английском языке, я также использовал переводчика. Все в вашем посте было легко читать, но не ваш последний вопрос. Данная тема - 80-ые стандарта и в начале военного обмундирования 90-ых. Вы можете купить это в любом канадском военном избыточном складе или ebay. очень легкий найти в Канаде. если это не отвечает на ваш вопрос, пожалуйста спросите это снова различным способом. хорошего дня

Even later... I used to go through Rideau Centre in Ottawa daily for the bus, and I distinctly remember seeing OD's walking to and from NDHQ around 2001-02. Mind you they were rare a that time as all the Super-elite admin staff at NDHQ needed there new CADPAT to blend in with the Starbucks environment, before grunts in the field got there's....but thats another matter:cool:


I do love the Volstad drawing (painting?) of the Mcpl form the Vandoo's.... looks like he could give rusty F-word about being a soldier. LOL!

Personally, I miss the OD's. Bomb-proof build quality... well, until one got "Combat-lingerie" syndrome that is ;)

Advise shops where I could buy WE ' 82

It's not in my nature to pose. Hopefully this is for a good cause. This is my CF kit circa 1987/89. I have adapted the webbing to my (airsoft) need. I have removed the SAW mag pouch to replace it with an extra C7 pouch I have also added a 9mm pistol holster and a plastic/rubber bayonet. I hope this helps.

Cool picture, very good representation.

Very nice kit, I remember it well:) Loved the jacket and the pants, hated the combat shirt:) Hated the webbing too, if you wonder why, try living with it for a month in Wainwright:) I see you even have the gas mask bag, brings back memories of gas training:)

For a long time in the 80's we didn't have the band for the helmet, we used rubber bands made from the inner tube of a tire. The buckles on the webbing where often wrapped in gun tape. We used the FN C1 (FAL) wich I loved but they were so old, mine was made in 1958. Around 1986 trials started to find a replacement, in the lot I remember the M16 but my favorite was the FNC:) Nobody wanted the M16 at the time;)

I considered putting a set of webbing together with stuff they had at the local surplus store, but balked at the smell. Consider yourself warned; combat gear doesn't react well to being old, damp and unwashed.

Also, I just realised that we went from a pretty customizable modular setup to a static one with 4 mag pouches. DRDC has a lot to answer for...

My jacket, pants and helmet were service issue. I acquired the rest thru e-bay and the local surplus stores. I had 3 pairs of new boots but they were lost during my last move. (somewhere between Manitoba and Alberta, there are 3 movers with brand new combat boots). Anyway, about the boots, we were forbidden to use polish as it would remove the waterproof properties of the boot. There was a liquid "boot blackening compound" available and then we would use silicone on top of that. @ Sentinel, you will not get your 25 until the blackening compound is made available to me :)
@ Suxar, try: www.ebay.ca/militaria/canadian also,

The mag pouches sucked ass !!! Try doing an assault with a mag change. Most times I'd drop it down my shirt because trying to get a mag into the pouch ( especially if it was wet) was near impossible. Most of the guys that had done tours cut the cloth/tab system off and stitched velcro on instead. I hated being stuck carrying the C-9 box mags. 3 on the hip and one on the gun made for one helluva a leg workout while doing advances.

I miss the OD stuff but the CADPAT does function phenominally.
