Hi I have a bit of Fj kit and wondered if late war say during the Battle of the Bulge could paras wear Army issue ankle boots , and with or without gaiters .Also black or brown leather could I get away with black belt , one K98 pouch . Only asking I'm on a tight budget at the mo and have ankle boots. Also para Y strap colours ?

Here is some.

Pretty much all of that goes for that timeframe. Y-straps in black, brown or none at all. You'll want to throw in some cold weather clothing though :wink:

Thanks mate , I was going to do Normandy but the boot issue put me of plus wanted to take my G43 (home made) . I only have the standard FJ uniform , splinter and tan / water smock's . I do have the balaclava thing (sorry don't know proper name) I was going along the lines of the FJ on the back of the Kingtiger seen in the picts during the Battle of the Bulge .

Thanks Andy :)

i think ankle boot are fine for normandy, lots of replacement troops in the fj by then, taken from luftwaffe field division, you see jack boots worn as well, and stahlhelms, i wear ankle boots for my late war look, i dont have yellow tabs either on my flieger, i think there's such a mish mash during the late war period, as long as you do the research

why winter gear? the tankriders wore their bonesack... Ok I would wear an undershirt and a pullover extra, but reversable wintergear no.

FJ would wear lowboots with gaiters, FJ boots, Stiefel

I meant any kind of kit that might keep you warm in your Wolfgrabhüle really. Pullover, greatcoat, turtleneck from Mutti, gloves, scarf...The occasional reversible parka as well though right?
