For what unit and when?

V Late War, Early Korea......Basically, if it was used for those impressions, would it cause a stink?

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.

You would do if you turned up as 82nd Airborne late war... After I'd finished slapping you, I'd point out that they had already been issued the M44 suspenders by that point in the war.

The photo in Czechoslovakia is of a guy from one of the standard Infantry Divisions, but I can't find the photo (think it's on the US Militaria Forum).

Cheers,
Glen.

M1936s work well throughout the whole war....unless portraying a particular unit.

Like Glen often says to me... for the correct impression it works better being an individual unit not an "isolated" unit of individuals ?

I meant to say i also have a picture of a 76th "Onaway" Division GI in Luxembourg in January 1945 wearing a pair of German suspenders....but i think Glen would have a fit IF i turned up wearing those....:-)

Regards

Lloyd
