In the scheme of things I would say I'm very new to actually wearing a full uniform at an event. I haven't been collecting British uniform and gear for long as well. but I am hoping to piece together a Second world war royal engineers uniform, I'm not talking field uniform for now I just wanted to start by getting the basic uniform. I'm not really looking into buying a repro battledress blouse as there usually very pricey and your better of getting a real one. I thought just until i find the actual piece, and since I'm not in a reenactment group and I'm only wanting the uniform for wearing at events. I could just use one of the Greek or Dutch battledress. I understand they are very similar in design apart from a slight difference in colour. I was just wondering if it is acceptable to start of using one of these ?
