Company HQ, with 3" mortar option (BR761) British Infantry in the Mediterranean
(BR761 to BR765)


As the war in the Mediterranean moved from Libya to Tunisia then into Sicily and Italy so too did the battledress of the British and Commonwealth soldier evolve to suit the environment.

After the initial adoption of shorts and shirtsleeves order in Egypt and Libya in 1940 and 41, the desert soldier soon found their exposed legs developed desert sores that would not heal when constantly exposed  to the sand. Soon long trousers became part of desert dress as well. The North African winters can be come surprisingly cold forcing troops once more back into their thick woollen battledress and even greatcoats.
