The M41 Field Combat Jacket, is being worn over the Army HBT Shirt or Wool Service Shirt.

M37 Wool Trousers.

The standard issue m37 Trousers in wool were the standard issue for GIs early in the war. These get replaced with Dark Green HBT later on.

What about a sidearm?

If you limit your rifles to under 370fps / 1.27j you wont need a side arm, and this will allow you to storm enemy positions up close an personal. A rubber bayonet is far more effective than your rifle at such close quarters.

Can I use Officer kit? ?
We would NOT recommend coming to an event as an Officer or NCO. These roles are reserved for crew and people in command appointments.
