Member of No 55 Transport Company 27th Infantry Brigade wearing 49 pattern battledress with open collar shirt and tie. Similar to WW2 battledress, postwar battledress differed with an open collar for all ranks. It also lacked the centre back seam found in wartime battledress. The battledress jacket while replaced by other types of uniforms in the post war period could still be found in wear well into the late 1960's.
The two tone beret was introduced in 1952. The idea was the coloured backing would reflect the corps or service. Yellow was chosen for the RCASC ( it was also used for the Royal Canadian Army Pay Corps RCAPC). It was not popular with the troops and by 1954 many of the berets had the coloured backings removed. Smaller coloured backings the shape of the cap badge were worn on dark blue berets.
Bush Uniform circa 1965. The Bush Uniform was the main uniform of the Canadian Army from 1950 until the adoption of the Combat Uniform in the mid 1960's.
