    Here is my small Portuguese display, the uniform is French, and only there to show the equipment, the M16 helmet, British SBR and Enfield. The Mills webbing is something that took a while to ID, and there are stillsome questions, but the Belgian Royal Museum currently has a set like this displayed on their Portuguese maniquine. I am having a reproduction uniform made to be able to display this in public in the future.

    The colour of the uniform is almost a match, its not very far off, do you have an original one?
    Can you post close ups of the gasmask and its pouch?
    Im currently working on a deal for the enfield, i think the webbing will be more dificult to get.
    Thanks for posting this Gustaf.
    Cheers.

    Hey Nuno,
    I wish I had an original, I have a young lady in Portugal working on a nice reproduction, in the correct colour, the French HB is close, but not quite right, I will try to get some photos of the mask, it is stored away at the moment, and the next few weeks are going to be busy. I just noticed that I did not have the Enfield in this photo It is a 1917 dated #1MKIII*.

    Here is an update on my Portuguese display, I acquired a tunic that was advertized as an old reproduction, I am not sure what it is for sure, but the fly front has been added to an older tunic to match the WWI tunic, I suspect it may be a post war tunic. The results are great, it is as close as can be, the trousers and puttes are modern reproductions.
