What about a WWI gunner?

Or cutting the legs off a prone gunner to replace them with ones wearing shorts?

Yes, thatís one option. Alternatively a BEF gunner. I donít mind doing the conversion but was happy to explore all the lazier options first 🙄

I believe that the Indian Army was generally towards the back of the queue in terms of new kit - and certainly the newly-raised formations that were sent to Malaya in 1941.  I didn't realise that British units were equally under-equipped.

Not even in the queue...(almost) all the best officers, NCO's and equipment went to Nth Africa 40-41 none to Far East
