Very cool. Someday - I have a LOT of projects on my plate right now.
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
Yeah baby! So excited! I may have to buy a set. But I have a question. would those rangers be good mixed in with the US infantry? because I have a box of US infantry, no less no more and I have been using marine specialists for flamethrowers, radio operators, streachter bearers and the like for my infantry and am in need for better specialists. I know that rangers had a tactical vest to prevent shrapnal,But would have there have been any other uniform difference.
The assault vest didn't offer any ballistic protection at all but was intended as a replacement for the webbing system. Strangely, despite often being called "the Ranger vest" not many got them. They were largely despised and "lost" by GI's in the weeks following D-Day.
