British infantry soldier
Here is a standard British infantry soldier.
He wears the badges from the 11th Armored Infantry Brigade that were a part of the XXX Corps.
These soldiers liberated my hometown and is a kind of dedication to them to show this particular uniform to represent the standard British "Tommy".
He is wearing the standard battledress uniform and is equipped with the standard equipment that is issued to every British "Tommy".
He is equipped with an entrenching tool, spike bayonet, water bottle, basic pouches, belt, cross straps, small pack, groundsheet, mug, jack knife, bandoleer and gasmask.
He is armed with the standard issue British rifle; the Lee Enfield.
He wears the standard issue British helmet with a camouflage netting were he has tucked a first aid dressing under it.
Just visible are a stretcher and a medical field-dressing bag that was carried by British medics.
