He is wearing the loose fitting Issue KD jacket and trousers with Khaki Officers SD cap (KD versions were not worn by Army Officers), to this he has added a soft comfortable pair of Desert Boots, a practical ascot tie/ Cravat as no shirt would have been worn, fly whisk to keep away the persistent flies and some fully embroidered Captains rank slides.


The MKVII Gas mask slung over his shoulder is being used as haversack as the gas threat was so low that Gas masks were not needed, so inside he keeps his pens and documents inside.


This Uniform would have been worn by most Staff Officers serving in the desert with just a change of cap Badge like Royal Artillery and RMP plus many more.
