Summary

    British D Day Paratrooper 6th Airborne Division Normandy 1944

    His MK1 Paratrooper Steel Helmet with a leather chinstrap was the main model used on D Day and was fully camouflaged up with a nets and lengths of hessian woven into it to help conceal his shape from the enemy.

    The 1937 webbing set was generic to most British soldiers as the ammo pouches will fit either Sten, Bren or Enfield mags and grenades, A newly issued lightweight gasmask with bag would have been carried together with his entrenching tool hanging on his webbing.

    A toggle rope around his neck was used for numerous tasks including connected together with others as a climbing rope.or could be used to pull the Airborne lightweight trailer

    This Rifleman carries  .303 Lee Enfield with extra ammo in a cotton bandolier slung over his shoulder

If you see original photographs of WW2 Airborne soldiers wearing Denison Smock’s then shoulders do hang off and the jacket is generally very loose/ baggy.
