Hi,
Who's got British airborne kit or access to it?

Not asking you to go out and purchase, but some have an interest in doing British airborne and we do portray Airlanding Brigade.

Let us know if you're interested?

Cheers
Russ

Russ,

I have started to collect british airborne gear but don't have loads.

I have trousers, Denison, red beret and numerous items of webbing (although not complete) . I do intend to add to it as and when the funds allow!

I can bring it with me to the photoshoot if you wanted a browse?

Hi guys,
If you've got it and don't mind bring it along, that would be great.
We do need a few more for the gun crews!

Yarp

I am in the lookout for Brit gear to complete my impression and would welcome doing some shows as Brit. Only thing I will probably lack is a weapon

Panther is the best for the BD's but Soldier of Fortune is good as well the whole of my uniform came from them, apart from boots and gaiters.

Look, you've started me off now!- best place for boots and berets- plus, did I dream this or did a lot of Brit Paras use the standard BD trousers rather than the obvious Para ones.......

Airlanding Brigades wore the normal BD trousers, get your beret from SOF mine is from there and its very good, I don't know about boots because I got my ammo boots from khaki devil years ago but I don't think they have a online shop anymore. But if they are still selling them I would say get them from there.

As Mitch has said Sof berets are very good with a large crown.
Most of our displays are likely to bd focused on air landing,recce or Royal artillery so standard BD trousers at the norm.
If badged as paratrooper then either trouser can be used.
