Re: brit kit of the krrc

You haven't said where you are. There are two museums in Winchester to contact. The Rifles and the RGJ museums http://riflesmuseum.co.uk/ http://rgjmuseum.co.uk/ They are the successor units to the KRRC. There is excellent general advice above on the unit from Universal Gunner. Can you talk more to ...

Re: RIP Tim England "Pride"

RIP Tim

Pleasure to attend games and socials with him. Just such a shame he has proved himself right when he said he did not come from a long lived line.

Re: SOF ammo boots

The SOF boots I have ended up as my best boots. The leather is thin and the metalwork is thin. They have polished up well and are comfortable to wear. My Lennon boots have been through all sorts of wear and mud and water. They are much thicker leather and have kept most of their metalwork well. They...

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

Isn't a catch all for the entire globe for most of the Commonwealth countries a set of Battle Dress for Italy and Europe and Khaki Drill for North/South Africa and the Far East, sir? Yes it is, I hope we can help and advise on what would be best choices in each to achieve a uniform appearance. (Pun...

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

I support the aim of getting information together for a generic British and Commonwealth look. You can then co-ordinate for the events coming up. Decide which events you will start with. They priority could be for NW Europe, Italy or N Africa equipment. Wool BD though is actually appropriate for all...

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

What Yith said and; The current PBI is mainly a Living History group. Only Gadge, McVickers and I take part in Airsoft and then not under an organised group. Location is not always an issue. In its first form PBI had members from Portland to Huddersfield who discussed issues online and only actually...

Re: Airborne Sidearm

A more proper adaption is to replace an ammo pouch with a brace attachment and fix the holster and pistol mag pouch in front of it. Hanging the holster from beneath the mag pouch has been described as wrong or farby. However many senior officers are shown in pictures doing exactly that. You may alre...

Re: Badge/Patch Identification

We may not be the best source for identifying this. It looks like the flaming grenade that is used as an identification symbol by many French Infantry units.
However World War Cthulu sounds much more interesting and may be worth a section of its own.

Re: Boots for NCO

DMS boots would use normal "football" boot laces was they are post war.

Re: Boots for NCO

Thanks for the great info! Your right about the slouch hat, however im not trying to be totally 100% pure and the slouch hat is the icon of the burma war, so it stays. Ive done a great deal of reading about this War as my dad was there. The more I find out about this, the most of the classic inform...

Re: Boots for NCO

I agree KD worn by all troops during the initial Burma campaign. You mention you have a Slouch hat, these are not worn by British units until the operations from India from late 1942 onwards. British Units prior to that would wear MKII helmet, Cawnpore or Wollesley helmets in action and usual regime...

Re: Boots for NCO

British NCO in Burma would be black Ammo boots.
Infantry would wear JG's not KD's while in Burma. KD's would be worn in India when out of the operational area.
