Hi Soapy,

This is great news and thanks for the poll.

I've a few questions for you. The tropical feature for the Germans is contained within a number of different headdress an attachments.

For example the Topis can have a neck protector attached to the helmet. This applies to the 'Pork Pie Cap', 'Hussar headdress', 'Ulan','Picklehaulb' and the 'Feldmutze'. Tropics include Middle-East, Meso, Persia, Salonkia and Macedonia. Photos upon request.

If you are looking at tropical ideas then consideration should be considered for all suggestions as well.

Oh I nearly forgot. A brodie with neck protection that will be suitable for the Middle-East and Salonkia.

Thanks.

Now that I've had a night to dwell over this issue, I remembered your thoughts about Arab Headdress and how difficult this is with separate heads.

So you may need to disregard my ideas and file 13 them :-)

I really want broad brimmed Aussie slouch hats. The current ones look like hats worn by pensioners down at the lawn bowls.

A sprue of Turkish sheepskin caps (Kolpaks? (sp?)) or Topis with neck curtain (if you know what I mean.)

I'm with Tank Girl. Tin hats with neck flaps.

As with the Arab headgear, that might well have to be a complete figure rather than a separate head.

While we're about it, any chance of shirtsleeves and shorts? Tin hat with those would be smashing.

Stirling work. Keep it up, old thing.
