We are doing Generic Infantry. If you go in the Lend Lease section someone may be able to lend a Tunic or you could use a IOnfantry short smock or what would be appropriate only a shirt (Its June hot fingers crossed) with a Zelt over the top.

hopefully i will get the rear sight next week to finish off my original K98 /vsr conversion.
The guy a couple of posts above has offered the loan of smocks in Heer type camouflage,but my interpretation of the rules for uniform prohibits these as much as my Splinter B jump smock?Have i read this correctly?
The image above from the Osprey book shows a camoulflage smock, is this allowed ,or is it Tunic in grey wool only

We would prefer Tunics but want to encourage people to attend so you can wear a Heer Splinter smock and infantry helmet. We just want generic infantry not Fallschirm jaeger or SS . Does that help? Looking forward to you attending.

its standard army field grau but its a artillery veteran if that is okay ? :D kinda hard to see in the photo but the collar has red on it and so is the piping on the shoulder tabs ,looks great though! Hope this current situation clears up so we can make sure the Tommie's dont take an inch of the Reich !
