    Looking good mate!! But you need to put the strap on the belt over the other shoulder though

    The shorts actually look good on it and this combination was often worn during the war... If you want to swap them out for some KD trousers don't go for the issued ones you will need the officers tailored / private purchase type, If you like I will take some pics of mine for you.

    Cheers Luke.

    Thanks Luke, much appreciated.

    Cheers for pointing out the wrong side strap, all fixed now

    Yes I like the look of the KD shorts in the display, a bit different! I agree that this uniform setup was not unusual, there is a fair bit of photo evidence as well. Even our first (and only?) Field Marshal Commander Blamey enjoyed a similar combination
