You're learning fast Will... well done! It's only a matter of time before you'll leave stuff in the car until it's safe to smuggle it in...if you haven't done so already?!

 

Ian ;)

 

Hahaha I thought I was the only one... sometime my other half checks out my room and tells me "hey I have never seen this item before???" :rolleyes:

Well, the way I see it, womenfolk do it all the time. You know the scenario..."Of course this dress /purse/shoes aren't new. I bought them months ago!"...or variations on that theme. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander!

Very nice Robert...thanks for adding those pics. Now all we both need is an assault vest!

Hey Robert,

 

Please post some close ups of the leggins!!???

I'll have to see if I can find them. They are trans colored and probably not right for D-Day. I think D-Day would be all Khaki, robert

Here are a few additions to the basic display. The first is to keep B229 happy!

Wow, I feel honored! Thanks for thinking of me, and nice Carlisle dressing you've got there.

Olive Drab shade 7 canvas goods entered production in 1943, so there was plenty of it around by 1944. I see your leggings are actually produced in 1942, so they are likely either OD shade 5, or just a darker variation of OD 3.

I had never seen a pair of 'transitional' leggins until now....

 

Damn, I need to get me a pair now B)

 

Thanks for posting!!! Great leggins

 

 

Hey Johan...we know you've got an assault vest tucked away somewhere. Why not dust it off and post it here?!

 

Ian :thumbsup:
