Odd to see puttees with a Aussie hat as the two aren't of normal pairing. Right colour though , but I'm curious as to why they would be included??
Not up on this set so do let me know also.

Rick, as far as I know, all Palitoy versions of this boot were marked Hasbro to differentiate them from the Tommy Gunn and Fighting Yank variations.

The puttees were sun faded in parts so it seems the sun penetrates the plastic quite easily which is what i dont buy carded bits as ive heard some real horror stories (A chap bought a Carded Panzer Captain for over £100 kept and admired it for a few years, then decided to decard and the uniform fell apart in his hands the only surviving bits were the sticky hat,and belt the map stuck in the tube and faded scarf Sad )

Such an expensive pair of jack boots luger and binouculars Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

Anyways here they are and to be honest they will look fine once wrapped around my paras ankles Smile

Thanks, I have same boots, but marked 1 and 2, probably doesn't matter.

You got a great deal, all quality stuff, the fades will easily be covered on the puttees, I'm sure!

Thanks, Rick

I never did work out why the puttes were there ??

They fit with the boots as they were both for the para which is why i bought the set for my para variations but the hat has me at a loss too Ade ?????

But it was nice to have a mint one for my jungle marine at last Smile

Thanks guys keep an eye out for my paras thanks to this card and Ade Smile cheers cheers cheers cheers
