Bought my insignia for my Heer loadout - Litzen, alternate shoulder boards and national emblem. As well as the gas mask canister with strap - it's all coming together slowly.

While visiting a test house up in Teesside, I took the liberty of detoring to a shop which I found by Googleing "antiques collectors shop near *said place*".

I picked up a 1943 British hot food container priced £22, a 1938 military use dated tennon saw priced £5, two mint unissed 1960s 2" mortar bandoliers priced £8 each, and a 1942 dated Vickers MG water flimsy priced £12.

After working my Southern charms, I got the lot for £35!

British '45 dated pup tent. FINALLY! paid a little on more than I wanted, though it excludes pegs. Looks unissued, but I'm sorted for the freedom trail now (legally too lol ), worth the £35. :good:

I know! I did say I'd be happy in a cave but rules is rules sunny. They wouldn't let me do it without one, damn health and safety. :slap:

A lovely new set of Panther Store "Battledress, Serge" with a collarless shirt and GS cap! :happyswing:

It arrived on Friday but nobody was in so it was left at my neighbours until Saturday, but I was staying at my girlfriend's house from Friday evening and all Saturday so I didn't get my mitts on it until around 1am this morning, but it was more than worth the wait!

It's perfect even down to the labels, with a February 1938 date on them (this might be unique to those made in Feb as mine was made in Jan/Feb), the serge has a lovely feel to it, the collarless shirt has early war type "gunmetal" buttons and the stitching is excellent. I ordered the off the peg size 13 and it fits very well with a bit of room to spare.

Worked out a few quid cheaper inc p&p than SOF too! Definitely recommend it to anyone who's after a full uniform.

My new Reed Green HBT Tunic arrived today from Richard Underwood. Very smart looking piece of kit and feels great in the sun.

Glad your happy mate, it really is good isn't it! I really don't have the time or money for the game on Saturday but by god, I need to wear them again :giggle:

It's badged up for Heer at the moment but I'm thinking of a way that I can easily attach luftwaffe insignia to it. Failing that I'll get a separate one for my lufty gear and use it for fallschirmjäger as I'll get a nice Tan and Water pattern field jacket for Field Division.

Ralph
