Then again, in moist or rainy conditions military greens tend to become very dark when the fabric starts absorbing moisture…

When it comes to Argentinean uniforms in the Falklands War, I'd believe Armand every time…

Thanks my friend… not that dark ever… even with the dirt … or the mud … the uniforms were so worn out (they had all been worn several times before) … that they were losing their original green color and turning into a light almost whitish green … my jacket was from 1967 and had a legend in the back in English where it was clearly interpreted that it was from of Vietnam days… the sleeves were uncooked and the buttons corroded … not to mention the pants … completely cooked in several parts by previous breaks … the only good thing was the footwear (boceguies) …some (I was lucky) of us had new and warm combat jackets … most wore worn summer jackets like the rest … we looked like real homeless …
