    Hi Nick, many thanks for looking and 99% fit me and I have small feet, so it is sort of a small boot collection

    Hi Vedran, yes you are right that's a very good point I had not thought of before,I wonder if these were issued prior to the US double buckle version?

    I do not know if I understand well your question, but I think that these similarities derived from the standardization of equipment used by the Western allies.
    France has its a new army in 1944th, organized with U.S. equipment, and was later itself started to produce similar equipment.

    I used to have a pair of the 50s issue rangers, really tough hard wearing boots. I think it's those 91 British desert boots that used to fall apart in the heat when the glue melted!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for looking Gunny, totally agree the Rangers are fairly bomb proof, sadly these squeak badly when I have worn them,which is annoying, and I belive your right the 91 issue Desert boots were based on the DMS soles and fell apart just like the leather versions

    Thanks Chris, I have worn these for many years as they are very watertight in usage, I have a pair of the German Mountain boots which I believe are 90's issue,and they are very good boots indeed.

    Thanks mate, I appreciate the comments, the Jungle boots are current issue Wellco made ( also worn by British troops) the Gulf War Desert versions were sourced from my local surplus store a few years back, and still had a load of dirt/sand in them.

    The helmets make a nice backdrop to an otherwise chaotic storage system for example:

    One day I will sort it all out as all the bags and boxes contain surplus that I am not even 100% sure of what the contents are
