    Have had this old uniform for years. It came from CFB Wainwright at the end of exercise RV89 (June 1989) where these trial combat uniforms were tested. This was long before CADPAT came out, Canada was looking for a disruptive pattern combat uniform to replace the OG combats. The uniforms were disposed of after the exercise and I doubt there are many (if any) still out there. I do not know whether to sell this or donate to the Canadian war museum in Ottawa.

    Thanks Ed, I am going to wait a bit and see if there is more interest. I will get back to you.

    If it goes to Ed it will be properly researched, documented and take its place in the historical record. My feeling is the War Museum may (or may not) be interested but, if they were to obtain it, it would get relegated to the basement never to be seen again.

    I agree with the general feeling on the War Museum. Ed would be a very good place for the uniform to end up at.

    I'm the curator for the Seaforth Highlanders Museum in Vancouver.  

    If you like some help getting in touch with the curators at CWM, drop me a line.  They're slammed right now, but I'm sure they'd be interested.  Conversely, I'd be happy to put you in touch with the curators at TMM in Calgary.  I'd have sent at PM, but I'm new here, and one has to wait a week before sending a PM. I'm not allowed to post an email address here either, but you can find me online with a quick google search (or send a PM) if you'd like a hand getting in touch with CWM/TMM.

    Cheers,

    I would be interested in it too. I have some modern experimental uniforms in my collection.
