I'll be in my nice warm officers uniform, will I get away with a plain white cotton shirt, maybe worn fashionably open with a blue polkadot scarf, under my tunic?

As it was too hot to wear a Fliegerbluse in Wales in April, I don't think I'll be wearing one under the blazing sun of Portland in June. My usual blue grey shirt I think, although a tan one might make a change.

Cheers

Apparently Richard's dad died recently so there may be a delay in receiving orders from RAU. Still a couple of months to go tho. so you should be fine :good:

As it happens I have a spare luftwaffe tan shirt in a size 38" - 40" which I could very easily be persuaded to part with.

I am coming as FJ and have got a Smock webbing trousers and a FJ Helmet (Had to paint it Normandy camo thought as it looks so cool :whistle: You will have just to think that it was on trial in Italy before being rolled out to the troops in France :wink: ) Now looking at pictures and chat FJ were wearing LW Tropical shirts. As I have to kit out my 2 lads (Money money money no not the Abba song :rofl: ) I was going to get a British Army No 2 dress shirt. I know they are lighter in colour than the tan LW ones but for £6 they may fit the bill.
What do you think

The shirt will be under your smock anyway, so I'd say it's fine.

Excellent kit list - well done on that, Stuart. :good:

animal wrote:just quick question where do you put the holster on the web set up when you have 2 mag pouches and a bread bag on the belt ?


Good question! I would tend to only wear one MP40 pouch. You'll find the pockets in the smock can easily accommodate a number of mags.

animal wrote:also i know the straps are the heer type and both belt and straps are in black i did read some where that the FJ towards the later years were wearing heer kit or what ever was issued to them


Correct - later war, LW troops were issued with various kit that was previously regarded as Heer / W-SS only.

I did read that british shirts were much loved by DAK troops in north africa. no reason to think that with the Italian front being such a poor mans! front, that they would not make use of any items they had.

You can use a leather belt loop with a D ring on it

I only wear one MP40 pouch, to which one Y strap attaches as normal. I use a D loop on the other side and adjust the other Y strap to hook into that.

(Handy thing to have - you can also use it downward to clip a water bottle into which is more convenient than round the back as normal, for example)

Edit: pipped to the post!
