    Hello James,
    Perfect for Daguet as it is in 92.
    I would therefor recomend a type 2 F1 even if type 1 could gave existed. Soldier going there were professional so subject to the latest materials. Additionaly the Type 2 was more "confortable" than the type 1 due to the Star protection in the liner (instead of the rond)
    But this is a detail
    It might be inetresting to look at the early daguet photos to check wich version they wore. I admit I never did it
