Its funny how your recollections can vary, I was sure that the LRDG came with goggles.
I had two uniforms as a kid which had goggles, one was the Panzer captain and I the other I thought was the LRDG. When I got my childhood collection from my parents loft there were the two sets of late goggles in the box. I dressed some figures not knowing that books and forums existed about VAM and put goggles on the figure.
I apologised for going off topic for making the reference to the 40th version. I know that people's attitudes to non original items vary and some may have felt it to be irrelevant in this thread.
Nice pictures Darren and Scott. The outfit looks best on a bearded figure, as I didn't have a beardy as a kid I have it on one of my original figures.
Another recollection of mine which may be wrong, did the figure come with a Lewis gun and Thompson SMG? I always associate mine with the Lewis gun I have in my collection, but I may just have got them at the same time.
(I have also figured out my Goggle mystery, the goggles are from the dispatch rider not LRDG!)
