as above.

I'll bring one for you if you're max'd out with buying WW2 clobber for the anklebiters :D

Just remember to remind me nearer the time

Well, in combat, you see all sorts of variations, due to practicality. I usually wear my bottle clipped onto the breadbag, but not with the strap through the leather tab, so it's easier. Anyway, you'll always have a comrade around to help you. That's the way it is with WWII kit. :good:

Yes, I usually just clip the water bottle on, and yes it does flap around, but it really isn't a problem.

where do you put the holster


left hip. There is just room on the belt for 2 x MP40 pouches, holster, entrenching tool, breadbag and then a zelt strapped on over the top. With all that junk, you'll need your Y straps though :)

As already mentioned, a few spare D rings can come in very handy as well.

Cheers

Tan & Water jump smocks are fine for this. Wear whatever trousers you have (as the real FJ did)

If you are buying a new smock then I would recommend splinter-b or plain green type rather than T&W as they were much more common and accurate for a larger time frame of the war. But as B&H says, T&W smock is fine for this even. Trousers can be standard wool heer or FJ type or luft tropical or Italian camo, or reed green HBT or Brit KD even.

So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

By late war, T&W accounted for about 10% of smocks. So I would definitely go for splinter. :good:

Depends where you get it from, I guess. If it doesn't fit, I suggest sending it back.

Hmm... strange. If you can't get it to fit, give them a call - they've usually got very good customer service.
