    Thanks to Mick for clarity regarding the sling on carbine

    Hi Mate. Re your Q should the carbine have a strap on it...... No .....remember the carbine was carried in a bucket not slung over the shoulder like a rifle with mounted Inf. M

    The added colour is great on these drab uniforms, it's looking good with the scarlet backing.

    Them's some fine bandolier you got there, seriously though the colour and ageing are spot on, good work.
