Captured Camouflage Uniform ZIPRA


Recommended Posts

Biafran hand painted, bolts of khaki cotton were hand painted with dye and then cut and sewn into uniforms.

 

This uniform was found in a shop or stall during Op Turmoil - Rhodesian Security Forces attack ZIPRA's Kavalamanja base in Zambia in March 1978, it had just been laundered and was waiting to be picked up . 
I believe it to be Biafran and given to the ZIPRA cadres in Nigerian training camps.

Fantastic on every way.
We were thinking it was hand painted almost like the first pattern Denison smocks !
And the paper work also !
Very unique I bet there are not many of those in existence.
Thanks for the education.
