My fellow collectors ,

I was really surprised by all the responses that my aggressor helmet thread got.
As I already wrote I got also three manuals and three pieces of uniform together with this helmet.
To give you a better impression about the whole lot I took some pics of my "Aggressor" items.
The manuals are from the late sixties and are very interresting.

The Aggressor nation that is depicted in the manuals is completely fictional as is the
Aggressors Nation`s language and even currency.

I have not seen many uniforms, (I would love to find one for my OPFOR collection) but here is another slightly different helmet from my friend's Dad and a photo of it in 1960s period wear:

I will have to search the barns and garage!
I have a "circle trigon" M1951 field jacket dyed in OPFOR green.
The "circle trigon" was the symbol of the aggressor army.
They spoke Esperanto and had a full complete order of battle.
Equipment was borrowed from the training aids branch on Army posts for field training.

Great memories.

I like the aggressor helmet, I like the cross flap canteen better, but KFC is that giant piece that he is sighting down.
