Remember that Gurkhas fighting in the Asia-Pacific did not wear the same uniform as those fighting in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, & Iran in 1941) or North Africa.

Other than the Indian army issue (slightly different) 1938 pattern webbing the two is pretty constant till 1944 a “new” uniform green and long pants (instead of shorts and hose) for
Jungle warfare. Some Indian army record on jungle training forbid shorts and insist of troops wearing pants (even when many took off their upper shirts to get some sun tan, the long pants remained uncut.
Though for the Gurkhas many would prefer the shorts with long hose (no on complaint though).
Well that was the end of “shorts” as an offical part of the British army uniform.

When I was a medic I assisted in an op to remove one from inside a soldier's penis. It was very much like slicing open a saveloy.

Nobody complained again about being big butch soldiers wearing pantie hose in swampy terrain after that one.

If I had a leech in the eye of my Jake, I reckon I'd choose salt over scalpel.

Truscott,
Should you ever offer to assist in rendering first aid to my person, remind me not to accept.
Especially should you happen to be smoking a cigar at the time.

The Asia-Pacific Handbook is being laid out as we speak. The specialized terrain rules have been finalized and are ready to go. Richard has started with the British Commonwealth forces and will progress through other nationalities in turn. At last count there were 42 Army lists to get through covering everything from Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, British, Indian, Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, US Army & Marines and several special units. Hopefully that will give something for everyone to try.
Cheers,
Len
