xavier,

They came from a local surplus/camping store, still in the wrapper and marked as 'French cams' even though the wrapper had 'size' written in Portuguese(!). After I got 'em I positively ID'd them as 'Cuban' from various camo websites and other references.

Cheers

Great find, Xavier.
The only picture of Soviet advisors I knew until now was published in a book about the SADF 32 Bn (don't recall which one right now).

I also got a set of this camo uniform (cap, shirt and trousers) that comes from a South African vet. The tags says they were made in Cuba.
Other items that came with it were a Portuguese web belt fitted with a Cuban (Soviet-style) brass plate and a Russian waterbottle with a custom cover made in the same camo.

Eric
