The reason I ask is cos I've been looking for one here. There's a couple of ex-army stores in my town & I've been in both. No joy.Oh, they have parkas - German - there's no F. way I'm buying a German parka.& they have Russian parkas - probably from the cold war era.I tried one on, just to see, like. It was like wearing a F. tent. It was that big & heavy. I nearly keeled over under the weight! You'd need ten weeks of combat training to be able to wear this thing... & survive.The worst thing I ever did to my parka was cut the hood off. How clever is that when you live in the west of Scotland?I was impressed, at the time, by Chris' hoodless parka. I think Hughie had one too. So I proceeded to hack-off the fur-trimmed hood & got my auntie to sew on another fur collar. While it looked fine, it wasn't much facial protection against the Glasgow rain.I never wrote anything on my parka. Never de-faced it in any way except cut the hood off. I had a German parka when I 1st became a Mod - I admit it. We all had to start somewhere. And like a plastic mod - I de-faced it. I had a big target sewn on the back. How gommy is that?But ye know, years later at scooter runs, I saw scooter boys with beer towels sewed onto their parkas?!So, people, wanna tell me about your parka?
