An unusual request, this, but I need to find out what kit the WYorks regt (Leeds Rifles) would be issued with for the battle of Cambrai on Nov20, 1917.
I'm making an animated film of my grandad's experiences, and want to depict him as accurately as possible.
Being November, he may have a leather/sheepskin jerkin on top of his regular uniform, and be carrying quite a bit of kit. This is as far as I've got with how he looks:
I appreciate that there's quite a bit to add - and would be very greatful for any help, especially if anyone has pictures of the kit and how it was worn - particularly in the heat of battle.
I'll continue my research - including of course, scouring these very boards, but any help will speed up the process no-end.
