Spotted this nice little article on the BBCC News site today.

Got me looking for the footage and found this...

Its a great watch and very interesting.
Most of the guys have a leather tong as an ID Tag holder as Ive read the string rotted quickly.
Also spot a great deal of KD, despite it being taken in 44. Some guys wearing JG tops and KD bottoms.
The KD bottoms worn are 42 pattern and some more modern 43-44 pattern. Additionally two guys dont have slouch hats in their hands. In comparision they look a little like Akubar Drover Hats, with the platted leather strap around the hat. A guy about 4 weeks ago at an events, stated that there was no KD worn in Burma ever! My Dad was sent to Burma in 42 in full KD.

Hope you enjoy?
