Socks and Boots
Greyback 1870 - 1902
Getting Started
Many uniforms and accouterments cross over several time periods or campaigns. Many items of kit were still being issued well after newer patterns
were manufactured.  It is always safest to go with an older bit of kit rather than a pattern not yet issued. The British Board of Ordinance and later
the War Department general designated equipment "P" an the year of adoption.

In my opinion the items listed bellow are necessary for starting your impression. These are the items of kit and uniform needed for an Other Ranks
barrack dress.  There are cheaper alternatives, but I guarantee these products will last for many years.
