I'll be sticking to the 82nd Airborne as I don't think I'll have the spare cash to get a commando loadout as well.

Thompson
1911 Browning
Jumpsuit
M1 Helmet
Large rigger webbing set/musette bag/Thompson mag bag
Torch
Grenades

Not sure yet.
Probably the khaki trousers, wool shirt and denison (my new one). 37 patt webbing (mental note, pistol holster didn't come with latest aquisitions. Must get one...)
Thompson
M1911A1

The No4 wont be taken, due to its unsuitability in tunnel warfare.

FJ Officers loadout. With a Tuchrock instead of a Fliegerbluse, as seen on pictures of certain officers from FJR2

Weapons? P38, spare mags. Crate of grenades. Don't think i'll get chance to play much during this game, so my armaments will be primarily defensive.

The entire uniform.

Syd was telling me they were equipped to land in Vichy France and the idea was not to look like the 'British blokes who'd deserted them as Dunkirk'.

Their were two Cmdos, No's 1 & 6, that were FULLY Equiped with US gear for the torch landings in Vichy held N Africa, once the operation was over and they returned to blighty they "Kept" their nice semi rifles(I presume they allready had the thompson, so the US weapons they would have got that they didnt have anyway would have been BAR, M1 Carbine and Garand)

For all subsiquent ops. they used their US weapons in conjunction with Brit kit.

In effect this means that you can Kit bash what you like from the USA and UK Cmdo.

Insignia, if you want to wear any as War office regs said no insignia outside the uk, is No 1 or 6 Commando title wich is red lettering on a dark blue ark, the combined operations "roundal" or thompson & Anchor badge and if you wear a beret then a badge, either your county regiment or no badge at all

Hope that is enough Info.

I would recamend a set of Denim overalls for this, for a number of reasons, and a jerkin with a Tommy or Turtle helmet(But I will be wearing a Cap comforter because I am special) & a shortarse

ah so by this point they are likely to have just been using the yank guns not the yank uniform. plus when they were equipped with it sounds like it would have been infantry kit. hrmm shame. Will dig into it a bit deeper and see if its doable.

Well, hopefully, if I get the camo gear on time from Spearhead:

M43 dot 44 camo tunic with LAH Scharfuhrer boards, matching trousers and ski cap
Steel helmet with camo cover
Rubber soled post war jackboots
Y-straps and webbing to include bread bag, canteen and mess tin
mp40 and pouches with spare mags
p38

Otherwise I'll be coming as GD - a la avatar photo - :D

If its a genuine helmet surely its better leaving it and painting a repro.

Asides from knacking the collectors value you'd be damaging a piece of history.
