Basis of impression

Cheap as chips British Airborne impression – by mixing post-war items with original items plus bits found in army surplus stores an excellent look can be out together. The entire impression will be well under £100 plus the cost of your weapon.
Note: substitute a green beret or cap comforter for a ‘commando’ impression rather than airborne.
