7th Armoured Div.
The Kit Bag contains images and aspects of day
to day life in the LRDG. As this page was getting rather large,
it was decided it should be broken into smaller segments. This
should aid in loading but will make it more difficult to print
as a single file.
Surprisingly, you don't see many shorts worn among the troopers
in the field with many wearing the Battle Dress uniform more commonly
associated with Europe. The desert was not always hot. Also of
note the scruffy appearance. While the men are not clean shaven
they also do not possess long, well groomed beards. The head gear
of choice seems to be the balaclava.
