    My ww2 FMR project

    Post by airborne666 on Sun Apr 10, 2016 4:39 pm

    For three months , I try to find parts to complete a new project . So here are the parts of my FMR soldier in Holland . The battledress is dated 1945. The patches are added to the battledress because is very hard to find originally patched . Leather jerkin dated 1943. Mk2 helmet with two-colored net and field dressing. Webbind p.37 all parts are dated WW2 and Canadian . I only need a bust for presentation. And best pictures.

    Have you any advice?

    Nice one!

    Can I ask something? Where did you found the 2nd Division Patch? I'm looking for those!

    I'm also making a FMR uniform as I know one veteran who fought with them from Oct 1944 to the End of the war and the occupation in Berlin.

    I want to finish mine so he can see it.

    Anyway, nice kit you've put together.

    Here is my project, it is not completely finished because I miss the pants, boots and gaiters. The whole thing is dated ww2. I take your suggestions with pleasure.

    If you like, you can switch the entrenching tool for a ''gamelle'' pouche. I think those were more common.

    But very nice collection, I love it! :)

    It is a Groundsheet/Rain Cape - Ponchos were not issued until the 1950s.
