    Nice video, thanks for posting. I can't wait to go back to Holland and visit some relatives...and some of the old battlefields.

    These windproof camo jackets were also worn by Canadians in the Korean War. I had one that had CANADA painted in white in an arch across the top and a bayonet tear in the back. The fellows were fooling around in the barracks and this chap was pushed onto a stack of rifles.

    These jackets were also worn by SAS, Commandos etc.
