Another bump, No.13 reserved pending payment, had some interest in quite a few items, but still no takers on anything else so far.

In line with the same post in Buy and Sell, the original post has been massively updated, lots of new items added, repriced and most have photographs now. If you've checked before have another look, might be something new and interesting there that wasn't there last time you looked!

What size (or even precise sizes e.g. chest, waist, height) is the french equivelant of the p49 battle dress? coincidently, how much would need to be done to it to convert to a ww2 pattern? I currently already have a 1953 dated battle dress but it is WAY too small.

If you're looking for something to use for WW2 I wouldn't read any further, as it would require being almost entirely reworked to get something that still would be incorrect on many counts. I wouldn't recommend converting original 1949 Pattern BD anymore either as the seams at the back will still never be correct, and enough good quality reproductions are now available at reasonable prices to stop the practice of butchering perfectly good original kit to turn it into something else.

If you've still waded through that, measurements are approximately - chest 34/36 inches, waist 32-34 inches, sleeve length 23 inches (so height maybe 5'8 or less).

soo it is a military battle dress size #7, unfortunately it does not fit me (unfortunately my chest is too big for three battle jackets I have seen already....did people not have as broad chests back then?) I am a dark age reenactor, but over the years from car boots and ebay I have picked up a full kit (almost 95% war dated) , the only thing that has eluded me is a pair of ammunition boots size 10-11 or bigger (in modern size) and a battledress that accomodates a 44" chest or more. luckily I have a military great coat that does the job for replacing the battle jacket at the moment .
But I agree on the point of converting something into something it is not, I will just wait and hope I see one some time in the future or get a reproduction, and I hope it goes to someone who wants it for what it is ( a good looking jacket) :D .

Still available, if you wanted it posted in the UK P+P would probably be something like £5/6, would have to check.
