There is an oval coth patch for the beret which is also correct but for the life of me I can't remember where we got them.

Can anyone suggest any cheap(er) alternatives to repro BD trousers?

As with all these things, it depends how fussy you are.

This is airsoft, not reenactment, so a pair of baggy brown or green trousers? If you've got a smock, hat and webbing no-one is going to pay much attention to your trousers at an ops weekend.

Perfect, just ordered some. After getting a denison, bandolier & beret the budget was a little slim but they will do
