I'm shortly to be joining the Navy, not Marines, but have heard from alot of Army blokes that South African Assault Vests are quite popular amongst UK troops. Is this the case in the Marines too? I've still got all my brothers' kit, and access to a few of their army buddies, all of whom still have their assault vests. Is it worth me bringing them over before I join with a view to selling them? A possible glitch is that they are a plain brown colour. Does all HM Forces kit have to be DPM or the desert pattern?
