Not at home so I can't check my copy but what trousers do the 'Polish' troops in the film wear?
Also, were they all armed with MkII stents or did the Lee Enfield NoIV get a look in?
Google hasn't been my friend today.
Cheers

I seem to recall they are wearing denims, i could be wrong.

I think the blanco they used varied between actors as well. Long time since i've seen it.

Perhaps due fo a re watch :)

The do look like the colour of late/post-war denims, but lack of map pocket and dressing pocket makes me think these are just generic grey-green surplus trousers (West German moleskins even?)

I think you may be right. I also never noticed until now that they all wear full zip denisons.

It must have been *brilliant* to be able to make films in the 70s and only worry about the story and not an online community checking every last detail was historically correct.

I bet no one noticed stuff like that back in the day, and no one cared either!
