Country of Origin:
The DEFINITIVE "Merc Life" field shirts, as seen from the jungles of the Congo to the silver screens of Hollywood.
First adopted as part of the Pattern 1964 equipment sets of the Belgian Army, these shirts replaced earlier pattern chino style shirts during the latter half of the Congo Crisis. They saw extensive usage by Belgian units, African troops of the Congolese Army, and European mercenaries in ANC employ. They continue in Belgian service throughout the Shaba I and Shaba II continuation conflicts in Zaire, and remained in Belgian usage into the 1980s before being superseded entirely by the third pattern of Belgium Jigsaw in 1999.
They're a pretty damn sexy jungle green shirt, and perfect for that "Danny Archer" mercenary look! Some may also feature the Belgium flags sewn onto the shoulder, a hallmark of a later production Pattern 64 field shirt.
