    That 1943 Windproof is a modern replica? Best one I've seen yet..

    Thanks, its the very hard to get hold of SASS one and is much better quality in nearly every way than the other Windproof replicas.

    What action were you filming ? I've never seen a windproof worn by an airborne brother in WW2 - or after for that matter.

    And when will it be on TV ?

    Is the badge Irish Rangers ? It's difficult to make it out. I didn't know they were airborne roled.

    Oh, your beret looks far to modern. Too small and too low over the eyes. Back in the day they had dinner plates that would make the French Chassuers Alpin berets look small Laughing

    Just a small film, mainly just a laugh. I portrayed an Infantry Depot Instructor, however the Airborne did have the Windproof, they werent very common or popular as the Denison was issued in large amounts. The badge is the Ulster Rifles (1 RUR were Airlanding) and the beret is a WWII Repro one with labelled and dated liner, they're not great though.

    Good enough for larking around Tommo Smile

    As is mentioned elsewhere around this forum, there is a real danger of some people doing 'serious' living history (for movies or documentaries) that is not historically accurate and yet those inaccuracies become accepted as the norm for the original period.

    For example, I've NEVER seen a photos of SAS or LRDG using the sand smocks in Africa - only Greece and Italy and then only really SBS or the short-lived SRS (there are one or two exceptions mind....) and yet every LRDG reenactor seems to be wearing one ..... No

    And nice to see someone NOT doing Para Regt or Ox & Bucks or SAS Smile I never knew 1 RUR were airlanding. Every day's a schoolday !

    Cheers mate, I have some of the stick from the Kit Police before, over some converted Bren Pouches I used for Private Battling, they are 1940 dated yet people can't understand why I wear them to Private Battles, everything has to be accurate!!! which kind of makes them hypocrites too! Smile

    And its great not to Para, RSigs and 1 RUR are what I portray, infact in the group I'm with I think they're are only a few Paras the rest are support arms.
