I was just going to go with a mix of BD and KD. It party depends on the 'summer' weather.

I don't think it matters too much as long as we look like a bunch of plucky Tommies, so normal tin hats and whatever clothing is comfortable.

The weather in Italy could be very fickle so it was pretty common for soldiers to mix and match all kinds of different uniforms.

The weather in Italy ranged from blazing hot to freezing cold and pelting rain/snow, so as Granger says, the soldiers wore a right ratag of different bits of uniform, but the most common was a mix of KD and BD.

I think as long we've all got similar hats (normal tin helmets), we'll look fine.

When sorting uniforms out, I seem to have got out my KD shirt, and BD trousers and jacket but I'll see what the weather is looking like nearer the time. Shorts are always an entertaining option, also me, Charlie and Chef have got Black watch kilts too.... (they really are completely rubbish if there are brambles around!).

I dug out my KD shirt and tried it on with some BD trousers. Looks pretty good and it's comfortable in the heat. I may get some KD trousers too as I did want some to dye for my Chindit kit
