  1. The pre war arm of service colours were scarlet for generals and staff , crimson for royal guard, green for infantry, dark blue for artillery and violet for engineers. Officers had dark green cap bands on the peaked caps and dark blue upper parts of tunic collars. The collar patches in the first 2 photos look quite pale, perhaps a lighter green shade. The seated officer in the last photo in pale grey uniform has collar patches of a similar shade to the cap band, also some of the soldiers have similar darker patches. I think these could be green. I would have assumed the pre war arm of service colours were used , but the new /neutral government may have used new colours.
  2. Do these Royal Nepalese army soldiers (training in India 1943-44 before deployment at Kohima) wear the Indian olive green battledress blouse or British artex lightweight jacket ? Would they also be issued with 1937 webbing or earlier 1908 and bandoliers ?
  3. Does this photo of a 1920s Sarawak policeman wear a type of British canvas bandolier or a locally made one ?
  4. Does anyone have a copy or access to "New Zealand army uniforms and clothing 1910-1945" by Barry O'Sullivan ?
  5. Are there any photos of the Belorussian railway protection/ guard battalion 1942-44 ?
  6. Any photos of the 3 Macedonian IMRO battalions in their Italian style uniforms 1943-45 ?

  8. Any photos of members of the Cook islands local defence force, which was set up in 1941 ?
  9. The smaller sized police for the cities and urban areas. I know the much larger gendarmerie had red collar patches and uniform braid.
