Shemagh, Scarf, Plain Coyote, UK Military Issue, Surplus £6.00

This Arab scarf and head dress has become almost standard across the British Army.

Similar to items used by the LRDG and the early SAS patrols. Later widely used by British Army Training Team (BATT) personnel in Oman in the 1970's and adopted by Special Forces thereafter.

Hugely versatile, these can be scarves against the cold, wind and dust, a sun screen or towel.

Equally popular on UK training areas as they are in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkans. The diverse climates of these theatres shows the versatility of this item.

When folded correctly these will fit into the poachers pocket of an SAS smock or a webbing pouch, you need never be without it.

These examples are genuine MoD issue, purchased as surplus, these appear new, but may show signs of storage and transit.

Plain dark sand 'Coyote' colour.

Shemaghs are also available in sand/black, green/black, red/white, blue/white or black/white. Please see separate listing
