After 1943 the LFD wee merged with the Army and issued army uniforms, so tbh, anything goes. Usually they ended up in a wierd mixture of Luftwaffe and Army kit. Your blue trousers coupled with an army jacket and/or camo top and a helmet or cap will be fine.

Low boots would be good though.

Earlier in the war they were wearing standard Luftwaffe uniforms (in Felblau) and were later issued special pattern camo jackets.

I'll be in my Luftwaffe uniform with a camo jacket over the top, helmet and low boots. Standard webbing.

When I did LWFD at one of Josh's games I just wore my normal Heer kit with a Tan and Water smock, a luftwaffe belt buckle and a luftwaffe gull in place of collar tabs.

I got your message by the way so will bring the smock for you

Regards,

Ralph

Mainly splinter but also tan and water. My LFD jacket is tan and water because I already have a splinter FJ smock. Some units were issued SS Oakley smocks, but that was less common. By 1944 they generally looked like a bunch of raggedy scarecrows in all sorts of stuff.

I'm sure that would do very nicely.

I think I'll take my K98 out for this one, I haven't used it for a while.

As the numbers are still very uneven I'm going to swap to the British for this one. Sorry to be a deserter, don't shoot me too much!

I'll maybe do German in June instead (although Driffield offers German possibilities too).

Hi Russel,
since Martin is deserting us, it will only be the tow of us as LFD.
Shall we stick to LFD or switch to basic Pz Grenadier like the others will be?
