Battle of the Bulge MP Uniform


Recommended Posts

Depends on what Division your MP is portraying, troops in units just green units arrived in the line at the time of the battle from the states tended to have had more of the M43 uniforms freshly issued, while the more "senior" divisions hadn't been refitted yet and were stuck with the old M41s, mackinaws and overcoats. There are accounts of some poor guys wearing pretty much what they had on since the summer battles. And if I'm not mistaken the 82nd and 101st AB units had mostly M43s since they had been issued them before Market-Garden.

For what it is worth, the M41 was worn right up through the end of the war.
