It's not a bad start at all. Just all rather clean and new looking. A bit of filling for those empty pockets would help too.

Excellent stuff lads and please take this as a compliment but you all look completely French! The men 60 years ago had a very different attitude and baring to many of their British counterparts and you display it perfectly! When I've portrayed 2 R.C.P. I always end up looking like a British person with French inisgnia, I just can't mimic the recklass abandone and individuality shown by your countrymen originally, but you have it nailed, well done! I look forward to seeing more in the future, bonne chance, Vive La France!

Thank you for compliments. It is true that to wear British uniforms by the French, made a different look of British troops. We try to recreate the ambience of vintage photos.

I hope that we could make a reenactment in England. And represent the French paratroops in before the D-Day.
