I amazed the creases in my BD trousers have lasted all this time. The power of wool!

I reckon the FJ walking out uniform is one of the smartest WW2 uniforms ever.

We knew there were lots of Aussie and Kiwi troops on Crete, but we thought we'd better keep things simple. :)

Excellent, Ranj. Taken with a "proper" camera, I take it?

Great new pics. . . . . .
Ah! The battle for Crete. We were just talking about this event the other night in the local. I recon it's the best event I have been to in WW2 airsoft to date. Well done Steiner and the guys. Brilliant weekend. :good:

Yes, and don't all the socks look a bit green? The prints are the same. Must be the film stock.

Thanks for the pics, great to see a few more with the Brits on.
You are right on the colour. The other colours look true to how I see them. It only seems to involve the long wool hose which look green rather than the dark Khaki I remember. Those wearing hose tops like kilacommie look the same dark greeny brown that they really are. Interesting point to think about when looking a colour prints!
