Nice setup. How is your tunic marked? What shoulder straps does it have?

The only minor comment I would have is that when the German soldier was trained to put his pack together, it was always "Deckel nach rechts" for the mess kit. The lid should be facing the right shoulder. :)

Best regards,

The tunic has a BA VII stamp in it and a faded IR number ,the straps are ori but did not come with the tunic.

You are right about the direction of the can ,oh well..
Sometimes I can see soldiers wearing helmets back to front, depending on how shell shocked the lad was …I guess.

Spiker I reckon he had to look out the other way for the ration party and didn't, want one in the back of the head! However he does seem to have the 1000 yard stare.
