    Nice display! This camo pattern looks so much better when it's matched with field gear. Otherwise it's kinda bland Very Happy

    Nice detail pics! Plenty of unusual items to look at.

    I don't think I've ever seen a picture of Czech soldiers wearing the hood as a helmet cover, so I think it's best to keep it with the coat.

    I'm not familiar with those boots. The type I've seen used from early 1960s through 1980s is a lace up boot with two buckles above the ankle. Is that a plastic clip and not a buckle on yours?

    thanks again for your thoughts steve ,its always a pleasure ,i wont put the hood back on the helmet as a cover ,ill leave be as in the first picture just slightly pulled up over ,the boots are definately czech issue but as you say about the lace up type i too am only familiar with them ,these do have a plastic buckle ,im guessing perhaps motorized troops of some sort pehaps motorcyclist ,they are something id really like to learn more about so im hoping others might chime in and confirm there exact use, thanks again, james

    I'll see if I can get more info on the boots. For sure they are not Communist issue. Perhaps they are, as you say, for motorcycles. Could also be for parade/guard duties. It is also possible they aren't military issue. German police and firemen, for example, had/have jackboots of their own that get confused with military issue. BGS has their own style vs. Bundeswehr, etc.

    steve that would be great if you could look into it ,brilliant ,from what i know and the research ive done these have to be czech issue, the soles have the reinforced toe and heel sections ,ive found a similar pair here http://www.zib-militaria.de/Leather-boots-czech-army it is also the same configuration sole as found on the vz 90 para boots in the lace up style ,i hope this info helps in some way ,thanks for your help and ill look forward to any information you can find out ,thanks james

    Thunderchild,
    you used for your display gasmask CM3 used by civil defence not by the army. You need M10.
    Also using the net for helmet is not correct. Nets were used in 50´s but in 60´s very rarely by Border Guard.
    I am not sure about the goggles but IMO these look like for motorcycles not for grunts.
