    Couple photos taken of me at The Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum, located in Oshawa Ontario, at their Aquino Tank Weekend Event in September 2021.

    Kit was built around reference pictures, veteran account, and manuals from the time period. Impression wise I decided to do 2PPCLI during the early 1980s, as they are fairly well documented. Critique is more than welcome, as I am always trying to improve the authenticity and accuracy of what I am displaying. Trying to get more guys interested in Cold War Reenactment, hopefully within the next couple of events there will be more people kitted up. If you are interested in joining, please send me a pm!

    Kit:
    Head:
    -M1 Helmet: Mitchell helmet cover, helmet band made from M37 truck inner tube

    Body:
    CF v neck t-shirt, combat tunic, combat pants, grey socks, mk3 boots
    Combat tunic: x3 FNC1 mags, x1 in weapon
    Combat pants: Bush cap in left pant leg

    Equipment:
    P64 webbing, belt, yoke, shell dressing, respirator bag, FNC1 bayonet, canteen cover, utility pouch, frag pouch, P64 ruck, sleeping kit valise, P51 pack
    C3 Respirator Bag: C3 respirator, C1 60mm filter, testing papers, instruction papers, decontamination mitt, DT60
    Canteen cover: Canadian produced canteen, CAN RJS canteen cup, C5 knife
    Utility pouch: Rain kit
    Frag pouch: FNC1 mag charger, cam stick

    P64 ruck:
    Main Bag: Extra combats, undershirts, boots, socks, hand towel, cleaning kit
    Main Bag pocket: Melmac plate, KFS
    Outer pockets: Melmac cup, paracord, sewing kit, extra boot laces, angle light, gun tape, black Betty repair patch

    Valise: Black Betty, groundsheet, outer sleeping bag, liner, combat coat

    P51 pack: NBC suit, boots, gloves

    Weapon:
    Airsoft L1A1 converted to a C1A1 with real parts, so far i've been able to track down rear sight, top cover, carry handle, and sling. Not in current picture, stock, buttplate, handguards

    Still a work in progress, as it has proven a challenge with tracking down certain items, and replicating things such as period rations, etc. I have acquired more items, they are just not in the current photos.
