    Its a good one, whether its worth 40 euros depends on its condition which is difficult to see from the photographs, but it probably is worth it. This is a British army greatcoat, rather than a US army one, though it is US made. It is marked WA which is War Aid for the British.

    On a display mannequin with a helmet, belt, Y stripes etc etc you'll have a nice winter dressed soldier!!

    That is a good buy.

    I have amended the thread title for clarity.

    Cheers, Ade.

    May be; are the buttons easy to find? I won it for 32E (40$) including shipping. Now you guys are gonna help me make a winter soldier as shown

    My friend has a british canteen with cloth. What kind of straps, pouches? And the brown european campaign helmet?
