Khaki Drill & Jungle Green: British Tropical Uniforms 1939-45 by BRAYLEY & INGRAM

210 x 296 x 11mm

The new paperback edition of Khaki Drill wJungle Green offers the most detailed examination ever published of the tropical uniforms issued to all three services in the Mediterranean theatre and in South-East Asia during World War II. The evolution of tropical uniforms under the pressure of campaign experience between 1939 and 1945 is traced in Martin Brayley's nearly 300 striking colour photographs, showing live models wearing rare original uniforms and equipment, and carrying period weapons, in authentic settings. The subjects illustrated cover a wide range, from rear echelon staff to a Bren gun crew of 'Desert Rats', and Alamein tank crewman and a naval party ashore in Malta; from RAF 'erks' and Army Pioneers sweating on fatigues, to a kilted Highlander exploring the sights of India, an infantry man of Slim's victorious 14th Army slogging through the jungle swamps of Burma. Like its companion volume, The World War Two Tommy, this book will be welcomed by militaria collectors and dealers and any other reader with an interest in the physical realities of World War II. AUTHOR: Martin Brayley is a leading collector and respected contributor to specialist journals in Britain and on the Continent. Richard Ingram is a lifelong collector of British militaria, and a member of the Khaki Chums living history group. He has co-written numerous magazine articles. ILLUSTRATIONS: 296 colour photographs
