    Nice display and i didn't realise the bundeswehr had been using flecktarn that long, but i understand it was first introduced 88/89. Those boots bring back happy memories, i used to wear them all the time in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s but sadly getting rare and expensive!...

    A nice mannequin James, but that chimera looks a bit cluttered!
    Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.

    Dear James,

    A very nice display. I would show him without the "flak jacket", according to my own memory they weren't typical for the 80's and not usual/used at least up to 1986. In our armored combat engineer unit your soldier would have "got crapped on" because our NCO's were not amused to see the pant legs inside the boots. The ends of the pant legs had to be reverted inside and fixed with a kind of rubber band of "Weck" preserving glas. So the ends of the pant legs ended above the upper rim of the boot legs. The ends of the shoelaces had to be put inside the boots, it was not allowed to wrap them around the boot legs.

    With best wishes

    "The ends of the shoelaces had to be put inside the boots, it was not allowed to wrap them around the boot legs." That must have been bloody uncomfortable!...

    ... it was okay. It was more anoying to remember for the correct position of the ends of the pant legs when you was busy or after you was sliding on your belly over the exercise area or during a manoeuvre. Especially when there was frozen snow on your skin between the pant ends and your boots Nevertheless after my BW times I even put the shoelaces inside my private boots (and I still make it sometimes today), just for the look, strange isn't?

    I think James's picture with the group of 5 BW soliders show them with the reverted ends of the pant legs.
