Sten MkV and a few British Airborne pieces

Article about: I've added a Sten MkV to my collection so I thought I'd photograph it with a few of my other bits and pieces (The smock is post war - can't have everything I suppose)

    Those eyes are a little unsettling...!

    Cracking setup.

    Wonderful looking mannequin.. This is museum quality work...I would not have any issues having this in our US Army Museum of the Non Commissioned Officer..., in fact it would be a highlight mannequin...Well done

    I generally am not a fan of mannequins. I find them a bit creepy.
    but I like this one. Maybe because of the subject matter. It's not often
    that you see one in a fighting stance, holding a F-S knife.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    I must admit that when I bought him (quite cheaply I might add) I wasn’t sure what I was going to do due his strange pose. Being a Hindsgaul he is well made so I didn’t want to start chopping him up. I’m glad the pose worked out well in the end. I’m not quite sure of what he was meant to look like originally in a shop setting, without all of the combat gear he looks a bit like he should be propping up a bar

    Thought I should add this to the thread. I bought it a few years ago for £5. An airborne sleeping or ‘whitley’ Bag. As well as for sleeping in they were used to keep paratroopers warm in the aircraft before they jumped
