    BRITISH PARATROOPER JUMP ORDER 1944
    Corporal of the Parachute regiment wearing full jump order prior to jumping during operation Overlord in Normandy 1944
    This Para wears the airborne pattern helmet, airborne camouflaged Denison smock and airborne pattern battledress trousers. Over his Denison he wears the paratroopers over smock which was a sleeveless smock designed to reduce the possibility of his shroud lines tangling with his equipment. This Paras equipment has been stowed in a leg bag which was strapped to the leg and released just before landing using a quick release, the bag then hung below the para on a rope which reduced his laden weight and meant the para could carry more in the drop without causing injury when he hit the ground as the bag would land first. His parachute is the Type X used during the war and right up to the 1960`s. British paratroopers had no reserve chute as it was deemed to be ineffectual during low altitude
    drops. His weapon is the MKV STEN, the barrel of which can be seen protruding from his leg bag. On his left sleeve is a gas detection brassard designed to change colour in the presence of gas. he has been issued a life jacket which he wears underneath his harness.
