        Judging by their dress and gear I’d say those are brits and frogs during the phony war period of the early stages of ww2.

        Note the soup dish helmet on the dude with the Lewis gun. And the lewis gun. Not enough Brens to go around.

        1. avatar Gunr says:

          Judging by the leg wrap-a-rounds, I first thought they were Nip’s

        2. avatar jwm says:

          Puttees, those leg wrap around thingies were inflicted on a lot of grunts for no real functional reason. Even Americans had their version of the useless things.

        3. avatar Gunr says:

          I guess they would keep the rats from crawling up your legs, under your pants, wouldn’t want one of the those things grabbing a hold of my “trouser mouse”

        4. avatar jwm says:

          WW2 american soldiers wore “battle dress” as their official combat uniform at the start of the war. It was their standard dress uniform, including tie, with the addition of pack, web gear, helmet and rifle. Patton actually gave fines to soldiers in the front lines that did not have their ties on.

          I believe the Marines had it worse. Their official battle uniform at the start of the war was a 1 piece set of overalls. In a tropical climate, which is where the majority of the marines fought in ww2, complete with dysentary and other fun diseases.

          Generals should have phones, radios and computers that go into a callcenter that has no other function other than to give the top brass the feeling that they’rein charge.

          Real decisions should be made by the people at the point of the spear.

          As I understand it the purpose of puttees and leggins was to keep the bottom of the trouser leg form flapping around, getting frayed, getting caught underfoot, etc. Apparently many Civil War soldiers stuck their trouser legs into their socks for the same purpose. Puttees were said to be superior to American-style leggins because they actually gave support to the lower legs. And of course, having cloth to “protect” the lower legs was cheaper than using full-length high-top leather boots.

      Precurser to the “office chair and fire extinguisher”.

      “Office chair and machine gun”, the natural evolution of this idea, is hopefully soon to come.

  15. avatar Another Robert says:

    I can’t believe no one has seen this add yet .
    This is the newest PETA add running on MSNBC and CNN .

    The attack was brutal and complete , no bears were left unscathed , either dying in the initial blood bath or having to mourn the tragic loss of their love ones .
    Hillbillies , proudly clinging to their guns and their bibles . Killers of all that is pure .
