    now onto the final bone of contention , for my display im using the latter desert tan , made by wellco , a maker general norman schwartzkopf selected ,the earlier mk3 jungle version was used in desert storm as they were the only hot weather boot available at the time from what i can gather some units did recieve the tan version while others like the marine corps didnt recieve them if they did it was near to the end of there postingClick image for larger version.

    Hello,

    Black regular padded collar boots or Jungle boots were seen and used more than these IMO. The vest and cover look great. I believe your decon kit, with the blue instruction label, is a training example.

    well here's the display ,ive added a few extra items ,a whistle ,an angled flashlight ,but dont believe this to be us in origin ,its close enough though ,an m18 smoke grenade ,again not a us one but british ,ive painted it up just for the display ,the choc chip alice pack cover should arrive from the states soon ,also ive put a spare shirt in the pack too ,as most of you know my war room is pretty cramped so to get round this my mannequins are in the seated position ,by the way i made the display from off cuts of timber ,so no thats not me displaying the kit Click image for larger version.

    Do wish to hijack your thread in anyway, but here is the insert for the first aid pouch, this one is dated 2001 but was exactly the same in 1991.
