ok no worries no camo for me, summer in the wools it is LOL :shock:

Actually, I don't find wools that hot, to be honest. I wore them for Ariel and was reasonably comfortable.

I noticed at Ariel that whilst the allies rapidly degenerated into slovenly shirt sleeve order and looked like so many tramps, the Germans, without a word having to be said by officers, remained spankingly smart all day in their field gray wool jackets. Well done lads! :lol:
I shall be wearing my M36 woolen jacket. :good:

Yes, the German army is where the phrase 'smartly defeated' comes from. :P

Dignified, even in defeat, I think you mean. :wink:
I read somewhere that the German soldier didn't like his uniform as he thought it old fashioned and wanted something more modern like the British battle dress. No accounting for taste is there.
