Originally specialized uniforms for wear in an operational i.
CADPAT uniforms are worn by army and air force personnel as well as navy personnel attached to army or air force units as operational dress. Until the early s, the Army Battle Dress uniform was worn both on parades and in combat. It was common to maintain traditional regimental distinctions, even in the thick of battle.
A notable exception to this was the Highland regiments, who were ordered to cease wearing their kilts in in favour of more generic service dress, the kilt being deemed "unsuitable for modern war". By the time of the Korean War, more comfortable combat clothing was being designed, notably "Bush Dress", in dark green cotton and bearing a resemblance to the Khaki Drill uniform of the Second World War. Lightweight Service Dress known as "T-Dubs" were issued for parades in the summer months.
In the early s, Battle Dress was replaced for field wear by the combat uniform, often referred to merely as "combats". It was issued as a standard order of dress for the pre-Unification Army, and later Regular Force "army" personnel in field units of Force Mobile Command and for personnel in field units or detachments in Canadian Forces Communication Command, as well as for personnel in other organizations as required for employment in a land combat environment.
Combat uniforms were not issued to Reservists until , although they were permitted to wear it if they purchased it themselves usually at war surplus stores. The combat uniform consisted of a long-sleeve olive-drab OD shirt, with two voluminous cargo pockets at the hip and two slanted pockets designed for the round FNC1 rifle magazine at the breast, and drawstrings at the waist and hem; OD trousers, with regular pockets at the front and back and a large cargo patch pocket on each thigh, drawstrings at the cuff, and buttons on the belt loops for the attachment of optional suspenders; an OD V-neck undershirt; and black combat boots, with trouser cuffs bloused over.
The beret was often worn, but could be replaced by a soft OD field hat or the American M1 steel helmet as the tactical situation dictated while the Canadian combat uniform was universally olive green, American style cloth helmet covers where two types of camouflage pattern were issued; a reversible "Mitchill" pattern consisting of a spring pattern and an autumn pattern sewn on the reverse and later the American woodland pattern. Officers displayed their rank on slip-ons on the epaulets of the shirt or jacket; non-commissioned members wore small OD versions of their rank insignia stitched in the centre of the upper sleeve, although for a period in the s these were stitched onto slip-ons, ostensibly to save wear-and-tear on the uniforms, but also providing the ability to remove rank for security purposes.

Navy river patrol boats accidentally strayed into Iranian waters near Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf. Iranian militia forces captured both Riverine Command Boats and the 10 American sailors aboard them. After a day of intensive diplomacy, Iran released the boats and their crews. The incident was embarrassing to the Navy and its new river patrol force. Three years later, the riverine squadrons have new Mark VI boats and a new philosophy, as David Larter explained in July in an in-depth story for Defense News.
A federal judge in the criminal case against Rep. Duncan Hunter ruled in an order filed Tuesday that a campaign-funded trip Hunter's family took to Italy was not legally-protected legislative activity, and neither were efforts to control political damage from a probe into his campaign spending. Olive is a warm neutral -not good for cool people. I would avoid it.
Go for greys or navy instead if you are cool. V shape. I love olive! Green in general is one of my favorite clothing colors, but olive works really well on me. Seems to go with everything. I have a few olive jackets, olive pants and olive sweaters. I often pair them with dark purple or wine colors. They also look great with dark jeans, black or blue. In summer I like them with pink or yellow. In this case, I feel that soft cooler colors are easier to adjust than warm colors!
Its one of my favorite colors to tone down bold colors e. Colors I usually pair it with is burgundy, coral, salmon and pinks with black and white. Browns, Camels and yellows just make my skintone look orange-y if pairing these with Olive, despite Im so pale I cannot wear foundation. Its such a subtle color, but its still a green so its something i find hard to get used to. I would enjoy wearing it as a neutral. Must go shopping and keep a look out for a jacket and or pants. Olive has become fool proof with me by pairing with dark slate and gold accents.. I have a tunic with a print I wear with olive jeggings and a long cardigan, an olive shirt dress and some other pieces too.
