DCLI jungle uniform 3D Model
In the 1970s the Light Infantry served in the jungles of Asia. As with other uniforms, the jungle warfare uniform was designed to suit the environment they were in. Each soldier wore a canvas hat fitted with vents to stop the head from sweating, a floppy brim meant that soldiers were more easily camouflaged. The hat had a coloured band around it, so soldiers to radio ahead to camp and indicate which colours were returning so . A ‘sweat scarf’ would be worn around the neck. Shirts had long sleeves in order that biting insects could not come in to contact with the skin. Trousers were made for comfort, no belts digging in to the waist, though a belt holding a soldier’s machete would have been worn over the waist. Designed with a large pocket to hold a map, they were tucked in to canvas boots designed for the warm climate. After the war in Vietnam War, boots with a metal plate through the sole were adopted to afford better protection.
