Don't suppose that anyone has a couple of small pairs of feldgrau trousers going?

One about 32"waist, 31"leg, the other even smaller....

Late war feldgrau was a very wide range of colour and came close to khaki

So check with Steven or David but maybe your Brit trews could pass?
I have a tunic that would fit, size 8.5 jackboots and a 60cm helmet plus some bits and bobs.

The 716 were about as un-leet as you could get, so the mismatched, sack o' spuds look is actually spot on.
It's certainly the look I will be going for
:D

Edit:
Forgot about the map pockets
But remembered that I have a pocketless pair of P02 SD trews that might pass?

This is also a wonderful opportunity to ditch the bling. The likelihood of a 716 soldier with any kind of WW2 gallantry or campaign award is slim.

I have, well Scott has but it is in my garage so I can bring ;) , a pretty basic fieldgrey uniform. I will have a look when I get home but I am pretty sure it is a fieldgrey jacket, trousers, belt, breadbag, gaiters and helmet.
The size will be me size, as it was mine, so a 6 ft tall stocky - but the trousers have suspender buttons, so can be held up to anything.

I can loan out:

Heer Uniform: 34' trousers, 44' chest
Black belt and Heer belt buckle:
M43 Cap.

We can probably dig some braces out for the troo's if sizes are out.

Kamaraden, being a poor contemptible Austrian conscript I was never issued a torch by the sneering Prussian quartermaster and Hauptmann's orders are that we're to carry one at all times within the facility, so to avoid his wrath upon inspection could anyone loan me a spare?

Cheers. :)

I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

I have a spare American made TL-122 type torch for any of the Brits who need to borrow a torch.
