This complete uniform set is what a WW2 British Airborne soldier would have worn when in combat in NW Europe. It is ideal for battle re-enacting an airborne soldier in 1944.
The paratrooper wore his Denison smock over the battledress tunic when he landed in the drop zone, the Denison smock would only have the soldiers jump wings and rank on the right arm while his battledress would have had full regiment titles and divisional patches. The combat helmet was fully camouflaged up to help conceal him from the enemy while on patrol.
The 1937 webbing set was generic to most British soldiers as the ammo pouches will fit either Sten, Bren or Enfield mags and even grenades.
Unlike the German and US Paratroopers there was no special boot issued just the standard steel studded ammo boot.
This same uniform would have been worn from 1942 till the end of the war by all soldiers in both the 1st and 6th British airborne division in the UK, Normandy and Arhnem.
For insignia for your Battledress badges you will have to choose a set and purchase separately you can be either a Paratrooper or Glider soldier.
If you want to use this as a base to create your own little set then add the individual items to your basket separately.
No weapons are included.
