Description

WWII Airborne Forces have long been associated with not only the maroon Paratrooper's beret, but also the famous Denison Smock. This archetypal piece of clothing was introduced in line with the German 'Step in Smock', which resulted in the British identifying them as "Jacket Parachutists".
