    Default Korean War AIF display.

    Greetings fellow collectors,

    This is another of my displays; a second lieutenant from the intelligence corp.

    A work in progress. I have probably taken some historical freedom regarding what a intel officer would actually be issued with; but he still makes a decent display.
    Helmet, tunic, trousers and gaiters all date 1952. P37 webbing, backpack and pouches are all dated from WWII. The enfield spike bayonet looks great but I am unsure if these officers would have even been issued a rifle during overseas service. Perhaps this display is another contender for a Webbley pistol pouch? Any ideas on this display gentlemen?

    Thanks for looking

    Best regards,
    Chris
