WW2 uniform questions...

    Hey all,

    Been a while since I've posted anything on PF, but real life such as a new addition to the family has taken up much of my time, a new addition at the age of 10.5 months... :)
    However, I have been slowly collecting a few figures to paint for a diorama in 1/48 scale of Canadians in Italy '43. Yet I'm stuck on finding any sort of information on what type of fatigues they wore. From the black and white photos, their fatigue colors look the same, yet I cannot find what type of dye was used. Flames of War gaming suggests that they were khaki grey jacket, english brown trousers, khaki helmet and the rest goes on from there.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as too what type I should go with. I prefer Vallejo Model Master, but if anyone has any suggestions of another brand name, then I can cross reference to find it.

    I appreciate it :)

    1st Canadian corps in Italy in 1943 and '44 was issued with British and Indian manufacture KD in the summer and British BD in winter.

    This Canadian WW2 reenactment society has lots of information on authentic uniform and kit:
