1950’s Czech A-3 ‘Mracky’ Camo.

This 1950’s Czechoslovakian ‘Mracky’ camouflage pattern draws its influences from late Wehrmacht Sumpfmuster (marsh) designs and is believed to have been printed from liberated German equipment captured after the war.

During the clamp down by the Eastworld, Czech resistance fighters were supported by emissaries of the Papa who supplied A-3 style caps behind the curtain. The A-3 being a silhouette synonymous with freedom was a popular piece of kit in the fight against the great bear. Today we offer to you the last remnants of surviving fabric, repurposed from a 50’s shelter half and painstakingly recreated by master cap maker Troy O’Shea on behalf of the Papa. May the struggle continue against any and all Totalitarian governments who would seek to oppress the people. Viva la Papa, Victory starts here!
