Although the regular army had abandoned battledress by the early 1960s, a shortage of funds dictated that cadets continued to be clothed in the uniform for a further decade.
Coloured cloth CCF insignia, denoting the cadet's school, were worn on the shoulders of the battledress blouse, whilst there was room on the sleeves for badges of rank and attainment.
Since battledress was the cadet's parade uniform (despite the name, it was not really deemed suitable for the battlefield) it needed to be kept in good condition.

 Battledress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Canada's battledress developed parallel to that of the British from 1900 to 1950, though always with significant differences, and then increasingly followed the US pattern of separate uniforms for separate functions, becoming distinctively "Canadian" in the process.
The green combat uniform became universal battledress in the 1960s, and was designed to be worn in any environment (though a tan coloured "tropical" version was worn during Operation Desert Storm and by the Airborne in Somalia).
Blue battledress was worn by the Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy shore parties wore a navy blue version.

Battledress represented such a radical departure from previous uniform designs that when a prototype suit was unveiled in 1938 it came as quite a shock to both army and public.
The basic headgear issued with battledress was a somewhat impractical forage cap, although this was replaced by a beret-style general service cap towards the end of the war (seen in the photograph left).
Not long afterwards the wartime style battledress seen here was superseded by the smarter '1949 pattern' uniform.The prewar OTC had by now become the JTC (Junior Training Corps).

 Men-at-Arms 112: British Battledress 193761
In the 1930s the War Office grew increasingly aware of the need for a new and more rational combat dress, and by 1937 the design for what would become known as 'battledress' was complete.

Complete with a wealth of photographs, diagrams and colour plates, this book offers a history of British battledress up to 1961, detailing its evolution in design, materials, sizes and applied insignia.

Khaki drab Battledress and “Battle Bowlers”, the iconic British helmet, are the trademarks of the WW2 British soldier, the “Tommy”.
These two Tommy’s are typical of the late war British soldier, their uniforms haven’t changed (the Battledress was redesigned in 1940 but was mainly to ease manufacture) but the weapons are now the Lee-Enfield rifle no.4.
The Battledress is the same as his Infantryman compatriot is wearing and the only thing that makes him stand out is the revolver issued to tank crews in their special holster and the fl Armoured Corps Beret.

 Cougar Assault Battledress
The design is hideously goldplated (onboard fusion reactors, anyone?); but that is perhaps unavoidable given the design intent.
The Cougar is classified as Assault Battledress, in that it is designed to maximise the combat effectiveness of one operator at the expense of cost and maintainability.
It returns very poor value for money if used to equip regular army units, but is valuable for heavy combat situations where a small number of troops must operate against a superior foe, especially if the enemy is equipped with armour and heavy weapons.
