RAF Sevens Rugby Team Uniform

Since 2007 I have been going to our local rugby stadium to mainly watch the Glendale Raptors play, but I also like to attend other games/tournaments as well.  This past weekend I checked out the Serevi Sevens Tournament.  There were 16 different rugby teams.  Many were from military branches of the world and the U.S.  Man it was hot on Sunday when I attended...96°F/36°C.  Fortunately the games are only 14 minutes long.

I thought the British RAF team had a unique uniform.  The camouflage jersey with black and white stripes, both on the jersey and on the socks.  Pretty much all of us who know DDay history recognize this is the Allied stripes used on planes involved in the DDay invasion.
