Scrim nets...didn't wear them...


I realize I'm quite late to this topic - my unit does an FSSF impression here in Canada. We've been lucky enough to actually meet a number of FSSF veterans (They had a reunion in Edmonton last year, at which our unit were honour guards - they are tickled pink that there are folks keeping their memory alive in Canada, the US and overseas, by the way!).

I'm interested in the comment above, though, since from talking with the veterans, they indicated that some of them did end up adopting the scrim nets.

Love when folks do that, I mean, you can say "eh" in a personally real life conversation as you might not have heard, but online, when you can just re-read it, makes me laugh... :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Is it wrong to wear m-1943 dust goggles on helmets for FSSF? (i'm doing 1944 impression based on the fighting on the Franco-Italian border in Southern France)

i've never done this unit before so sorry if it seems stupid

Haven't got any evidence for the FSSF wearing them, wasn't needed, aren't they more or less seen but non transport (and transport) troops in N.Africa? Can't recall any leg troops wearing them in Italy too, again though, never say never, and if there is "proof"...
