A 40's Revival 4/7

Taken at a 40's event at our local Shepshed Watermill a few weeks back.  This guy was concentrating on something or somebody across the way from him. I like the old fashioned big trouser tops held up by those real old fashioned braces and that great big belt.

I like his Popeye forearms, Brian...looks like he could keep the Hun at bay!
Brian Walbey: He's certainly a big bloke Ray, I wouldn't argue with him.
The Christmas tree on his beret belies his stern expression! smile
Brian Walbey: It does look like a Christmas tree, I wonder what regiment it was.

Quite right: his trousers are as well secured as the Bank Of England!
Brian Walbey: They must have been very uncomfortable I always think and heavy if wet.
When they say belt and braces they really mean it Brian
Brian Walbey: He's got the full set here Bill.
Great series Brian remides me of my time in the army cadets a long time ago.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pedroeric, my son was in the Army Cadets for several years and loved it, he had planned to join the Army but they had a lull in recruiting when he was the right age and by the time they started again he'd gone on to other things.
a tough guys with a good heart
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought that Chantal.

Chris might be interested in these braces - I didn't see them on his blog in the last time.
Brian Walbey: He has already caught up with he braces Philine and I think approves of them.

That is more like a beret Brian, and that belt, I was issued one of these blanco types when I joined the army in 1968.
Brian Walbey: Yes very much an ordinary sort of beret Chad.

Looks just like an image I have in my mind of someone who is about to go up in and then parachute down behind enemy lines and save us from the Hun. A proper hero.
Brian Walbey: Whether they looked like this or not Alan they were all heroes for what they done.

How things have changed, Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed they have Lisl, no camouflage clothes in those days.
Fine capture Brian. I like his expression!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
"Get that belt buckle polished you 'orrible little man!"
Brian Walbey: smile All part of the job I suppose Tom.
He seems to have seen something a bit suspicious over there, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think he might have been looking at the ladies in Fridays picture smile
