The Doughboys will be asking participants to wear the following uniforms. Although we obviously would prefer all players to wear and use exactly the right uniforms we understand that this is not possible for all players. Hence we have written up some guides to “near-perfect” and “close-to” uniform options, which should give players less expensive options. “Close-to” kit should be confirmed with your respective side commander or organiser prior to purchase and/or booking onto the game.

AXIS: (20 Places)

Deutsches Afrika Korps (Near-Perfect):
Heer tropical tunic and trousers or shorts with insignia
Appropriate tropical shirt if worn
German helmet painted in dunkelgelb, braun or sand, or tropical peaked cap
Canvas ‘tropical’ webbing
Tropical boots (with or without anklets)
(see kit guide when available)

Deutsches Afrika Korps (close-to):
German tropical, Italian or British KD shirt. Heer tropical trousers or shorts.
German Helmet painted dunkelgelb, braun or sand, or tropical peaked cap
Normal German temperate Webbing
Standard low boots (with or without anklets)
(see kit guide when available)

ALLIED: (20 Places)

United States Army (Near-Perfect):
M41 Jacket with Big Red one patch on upper left arm.
M1936 Mustards
Roughout Boots with leggings.
Weapon specific webbing + haversack and t-handled shovel
(see kit guide when available)

United States Army (close-to):
M38/M41 Jacket
M1936 Mustards/Army HBT trousers/British no.2 trousers
Roughout Boots/Low ankle brown or -black boots with leggings.
Fighting order webbing
(see kit guide when available)

Thinking about coming to this one...before I get any arguments saying 'you can't come as Airborne,' I'm not doing. I was just looking at the kit guide, I'm ok for all of it except the boots. Will my Corcorans with the trousers hiding the tops do (as in not bloused over them)...or not?

Also just so there's no argument...no I wouldn't be wearing a helmet with Spade, no I wouldn't be wearing my 42's, trousers or jacket, I wouldn't be carrying a musette bag and have no intention of arguing that the 10st were anywhere near Africa by this point in the war...in fact they didn't exist. Rant over.

A set of leggings (gaitors) over the top of your corcorans wouldnt be far off Alex, they're not too pricey too.

Heh, yeah, corcorans with leggings over (my last original pair cost just £5) would look rather like service boots. So fine.

Yeah, Stamper got all the Kudos from the Doughboys training day when he showed us his alternative rifle drill moves....and all that without clocking himself across the chops with the butt of the garand! :lolpanda:

A spot on for DAK would be any British clothing in KD as they used as much of it as they could possibly get-stuck to their own helmets, caps and webbing of course :-)
