Thanks everyone.
Sometimes you make the right head , and this time I think I got it .

Nik, the Indian and British troops wore Jungle Green battledress , which of course had the waistband like serge BD , and a similar layout of pockets.
I've done a couple of conversions from the BBI
" Harry Sinclair " uniform in the past. It's a relatively simple sewing job. , but you need a spare uniform ideally to cut the waistband from.
The overall effect is pretty similar , but if you want to be accurate about it, that's the uniform they should have .

Of course , back in 1942 both Australians and British & Indian troops were still wearing Khaki Drill . The first Australian victory ,the Kokoda Track , was fought entirely in KD. The JG uniforms came in shortly after.
