Well, we've all been very quiet but August isn't that far off now so I thought I'd get the ball rolling.

This scenario is set in Italy and we are playing it late August, so barring a washout summer, the ideal opportunity to wear some lightweight gear. I was planning on either a mix of KD and BD or possibly full KD, maybe even my shorts (although not if the woods are full of brambles!).

Anyone else had any thoughts on uniforms?

I'll probably leave the Bren at home for this and just bring an SMG and my No. 4.

Cheers
Martin

KD shirt and BD trousers for me; unless there's a wider consensus for anything different. :good:

:lol: Germans wore a lot of captured KD too, KD trousers and shirt with a field grey jacket looks rather smart.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Really not keen for a repeat full on wool extravaganza like Normandy!

Now the weather is looking cooler and wetter I'll probably be going for more BD and less KD.

I am sure your lighweights will be fine, British denims were green anyway.
