British WW2 Paratrooper Full Uniform Set

From £659.81 £549.83

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.

Summary

    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.

    The uniform consists of all the items listed once you click Customizes and add to cart, here you are able to select any sizes if applicable. The image is indicative of the pack but please refer to the Pack Contains for the items included.

     

    Size Chest Height
     Size 1  34 - 36 inches  5ft4"   - 5ft5"
     Size 2  36 - 38 inches  5ft6"   - 5ft7"

     Size 7  46 - 48 inches  6ft      - 6ft1"
     Size 8  48 - 50 inches  5ft11"   - 6ft2"

    PLEASE NOTE: The Denison Smock sizes above are given as if you were wearing one of them in WW2 with Battle dress and wool shirt underneath plus still being roomy to store in extra gear you might need on landing. If you require a more fitted/ smart looking Smock then it might be worth choosing a smaller size. 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.
