    Here is a scan of the Q record as well as an old official diagram of late war jungle kit (as reproduced in Saddle Up by Rick Landers which I highly recommend). Let me know if any of this is confusing.

    If anyone else is able to help with US paratrooper and ranger equipment lists that would be superb!

    G'day Torch, Have you tried searching google? Seeing as it is quite a popular subject surely there is some info on there? Otherwise you could try asking/searching on the US Militaria Forum by clicking here > U.S. Militaria Forum

    Cheers
    Luke.
