    I'm looking for information on the uniforms and equipment used by Canadian forces (1990's) in the Balkans. I have a basic understanding (I think) of the uniforms and equipment but would love to know more about the variations and insignia plus maybe a source to acquire various pieces dating to this history. A source of period photographs would be particularly helpful.

    Maybe worth trying on some of the British collectors sites too mate as we worked with all nations.
    I picked up all sorts from the nations I worked with.
    Just an idea.

    Good day,

    This is an old post, but I served in the Balkans (PPCLI) from March 93 to September 93 (Medak). I can speak to kit (in fact, I still have a couple pieces that I wore during that mission in an old kitbag somewhere) and happy to entertain any questions you may have. It has been nearly 30 years, but still recall many details.
