Sample 1: Portuguese Style South Africa Production
Portuguese-style jacket as used by bushmen of 31 Battalion (?). South Africa produced (source: http://www.newrhodesian.ca/viewtopic.php?p=14555#p14555).
Sample 2: Rhodesian Production
“Police” version? Pile liner is like a vest. Rhodesian production (source: http://www.newrhodesian.ca/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1484#p13915).
Label intact with 1969 date and Rhodesian manufacturer.
Brown color is more reddish than South African Version, above.
Sample 3: Slant Pocket
Same reddish brown as Sample 2. Exactly the same cut as later 2nd Pattern jacket.
Slanted pockets with button closure.
Possibly Rhodesian produced like Sample 2 due to long, horizontal tag and velcro at cuffs.
Sample 4: Hat
Fabric is twill, different from poplin of jackets.
Color Balanced Swatches:
Brown on South African version (sample 1) is much less red than brown on the Rhodesian version (sample 2).
