Is there any shop offering ATS brown boots for BD uniform? I kave been looking for them for a very long time.
My size is 39 - european.
My other question is if you know some good shop offering ATS items.
I like World War Wonders, Westland or CS Militaria...

If you can't find original boots, I used brown paddock boots. If they come with easy lace grommets, cut the easy part off or have new grommets put in. No one notices my boots unless you look at the rubber soles.

My wife had the same problem. In the end she got a pair of What Price Glory brown officer’s boots (£55) and dyed them with oxblood leather dye. Not perfect, but with anklets they look (just about) near enough.

I advertised three pairs on here, 42 dated, size 7 & 8. Sold them on ebay in the end for £85. Wish I could have got £200 a pair!

No one wanted them, however I'm taking some to Newark in Nov. and some large size ATS kit (original)

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
