  2. I'm intrigued as to why you are asking?

    I wasn't there, but I'd guess at:

    Not worn.

    Hessian

    God knows. Butt number on the stock?

    Brown

    They are questions for a figure I am modelling. I like the figure to be as representative as possible.
     
  4. Ab Smock with wings and dz flash or alternatively SAS/Artic Smock without wings and flashes, no time to put them on.
     
  5. Hessian and net-DPM helmet covers werent on issue at that time.
     
  6. scrim and any additional cam were personal tastes, i know as i have a suitably un cool photo
     
  7. I was a "medic" RAMC.....sent from Hong Kong.....done or wore nothing special just wore basic kit!!!!
     

  8. No one in 3 Para still serving who was in Falklands,,,,,
    But try 13AA.....they have 2 members I know still serving!!!!!!!!!
    "wore a different badge at the time"
     
  9. Rubbish - I can think off 3 blokes off the top of my head who are still serving within the Regiment.
     
  10. Rooper is C**** D **** still in?
     



  11. It was 25 years ago, so if any Falklands vets are still in they would all be commissioned by now, captains even majors. There are bound to be some in the battalions still kicking round, as said Rooper can still think of some.
     
  12. Yes these are orficers!!!!!

    But none in 2 + 3 Para!!!!....I know 8)
