- Canadian Para Smock
Parachutist Smock issued to the
Canadian Airborne Regimentfrom 1975 until the regiment was disbanded in 1995 and all units of 1 SSF Brigade including the 1st Battalion of The Royal Canadian Regiment based in London, Ontario. Made of 'Reverse DPM' camouflage, it is very similar to the British issue para smock but with more features.
It replaced the
Denison smockin the 1950's but the first issue post war para smock was olive green until the arrival of DPM in 1975.
