FNAR, FNAR. The Greatcoats in use with the Greek Army look like they are Brit WWI - I believe that Sabre Sales had some in the vaults.....

I Know .I Know . But it is Too Small i need one in Size "44" too have some Space left in Reserve. But too find an Affordable Bd-including Trouser 40Waist-30Length it is just like Playing Lotto or Bingo I Had a Useless BD-Wreck in size :Size "11" For Length 5`9-5`10 and Breast 38-39 and waist 33-34 i had here but no one wants to buy it for me its at least 2x Numbers too small but i Forget it,s a Extreme good Quality repro.

eBay it Petros? or use the For sale section? Cast about a bit for a decent replica BD, you may be lucky, since the EU doesn't pay VAT on goods from UK. Good Hunting

Question: ho in the greek army wore berets? because i dont know!---


Answer: Before The War as i Know NO ONE after Comming in Touch with the British and under British Command A lot: Example : Sacred Squadron wear Green Or SAS Berets ( Even Today Paras in Greece wear The Green Beret ) as sign of Bravery .Black Berets Bei tankers,Khaki Berets Bei Infantry, Marines does not Exist,Paras Doesn,t Exist formed First in 1952 .Before i Forgot it The Phalange ( Metaxas-Youth Service -Wear somekind of a Beret But these were not Regular Soldiers).



Hope this info is Usefull:

From my Personal view. Sir Winston Churchill and Gen. Count Metaxas was of the Brillianst and Ablest Statesman in 20Th Century even with her Failures who are Forgettable every Men even a Politician make Failures .I accept them as a historical figures who Undiscussable they are. About Churchill He was From The Beginning a Declared enemy of Hitler and his Cheap Collegua Mussolini and History tell us that he and his Antipathy against The Great Dictatores was Right.

Agree with you whole heartedly there! I would not have got my Polish uniform and equipment together as quickly and as well as I have if this Forum did not exist!

It is good that there are more people here talking about, and asking questions about, the less well known armies in the World War - this way they who fought will never be forgotten as at least we will remember them.
