    I am starting to compile bits of current uniform to make a display on a mannequin of a British soldier in Afghanistan.

    Probably late Afghanistan rather than early.

    Can anyone help by pointing in the right direction where to get this information/ photos or provide any gems of knowledge themselves then it will all be greatly received.

    Osprey body armour vs assault vests, type of boots etc

    Thanks for your time

    Hi mate,

    First of all welcome to the forum, have you tried a Google Image search?....if not then the MOD photo database is also a great place to look for photos....

    Troops in Afghanistan tend not to wear a lot of ad-hoc kit out there now. Rules seem to have been greatly relaxed in this dept. They even grow beards to help with getting on with the locals. In recent times a lot of new kit has been issued too like the body armour and the desert dpm fleece to name but two. You may have trouble getting the latest stuff especially the body armour (The old pattern was nigh impossible to find complete a few years ago). I've got my feelers already out for one of the new issue fleeces :)

    Anyway hope the links help.
