ITO

I received a box, literally, from BraveRifles, mostly Brit Kit. Alotta Brit kit I normally wouldn't consider. So I took a crack at a couple of Canucks Sicily/Italy summer 1943/44. There are the usual complaints about the accuracy, maybe they're copying Canadian kit?? But you know what, once you kit a fellow out you cover most of the offences. Can't sew for beans anyways.
Still working on rolling up the sleeves on the beret'd rifleman. There was a bunch of insignia for ITO from CVI, I'll have to pull it out of the trade box.

Anyway's a tank hunting team ITO.

they look great!

Geoff - the guy with the PIAT - the web anklets look really good - very life-like, and not the usual floppy mess that I get with them. How did you do it?

Yes that is why I do Canucks, very few know anything anyways and they are usually pretty polite about being a Stitch Nazi most of the time.

Those anklets are the ones that come with the NLM Ammo boots. Stiff as a board, thick and really tight. How I got them on is unknown, they need to be stitched on(maybe wet) and then tightened. The straps and buckles can't do it.
Had some luck using DML gaitors, moved the buckles back a 1/4" cut a piece of cardboard from a cigarette package slightly smaller than the gaitor, glued the cardboard to the anklet and then put it on before the glue set.

Re: ITO

A few months ago I got the newest edition of The Regiment(Hastings And Prince Edward Regiment) by Farley Mowat. It contains all the original text of his 1st book but with the addition of maps, pictures, nominal roles, and casualties of the regiment during the war. It covers from the time of mobilation till they returned home to Belleville Ontario. There is extensive coverage of the regiment's role in the Italian campaign. If you can get a copy of the new release it's a super read. I guess you could say I'm a bit biased being an ex member of the regiment(Mcpl, ACoy, #1plt, 1974-79)
