New PDF release: army commandos 1940-1945

By Mike Chappell

The interval from early 1940 to the top of 1942 used to be a time of gloom and uncertainty for the British, who stood by myself opposed to the assembled may well of the Axis powers. They badly wanted a champion, and have been to discover this in a small strength of squaddies who encouraged them with a chain of bold raids opposed to the coasts of 'occupied Europe', turning into the heroes of the British public and of the British top Minister who had created them. This name explores the wartime historical past of the British military Commandos whose bravery did rather a lot to elevate the morale of the British public in the course of global struggle II (1939-1945).

Sample text

This tired nursing sister, taking a break during the bloody fighting following the break-through at Cassino, wears a khaki ‘aertex’ shirt with the two embroidered rank ‘pips’ of lieutenant on epaulette slides, KD slacks, khaki veil, and the RCAMC nurse’s brown leather belt with bi-metal clasp. 1 Canadian General Hospital served together, wearing a mix of wool or KD skirts and slacks with KD bush jackets and cotton or aertex shirts. Headwear was equally variable, including veils, headscarfs and khaki berets.

RCAMC Nursing Service relative ranks Matron-in-Chief Lieutenant-colonel Principal Matron Major Matron Captain Nursing Sister (after 6 months) Lieutenant Nursing Sister (under training) 2nd Lieutenant Australian Army Nursing Service 34 The AANS was formed in 1898, and 26 nursing sisters saw service in South Africa during the Boer War. The contribution made by the nurses was recognised in 1902 when the service received official status, and confirmed in 1903 when they became a Reserve of the Australian Army Medical Corps.

Under field conditions complaints were received about the fastening – a five-button front with a storm flap secured by three press studs; the studs tore away from the fabric too easily, the short shanks of the buttons made them insecure, and the bottom button was at waist level leaving the lower front open. These faults were not rectified, but the garment did at least offer better protection than had previously been available. Coming back cheerfully from ‘mail call’, this nurse exiled to the Aleutians in winter wears her parka with a knit ‘beanie’ cap, probably a male issue ‘M41’ field jacket, ill-fitting men’s HBTs, OD wool gloves with brown leather palms and metal-snapped black cloth and rubber ‘Overshoes, Arctic, Women’s, 4-Buckle’.
