      Superb photo!

      I would place it at late 1943. Training jump or combat jump in Italy or Leros, etc.

          Hi, Patrick

          Yes interesting photo that i have seen on another place I would say mid 1943 in Normandy, during the training of the 1st FJD.

            Any ideas what that might be?

              It seems to be a length of cord that goes until his right knee. Did he jump with his mauser ? Perhaps a security cord to release the K98 before touching the ground ?
              Just my two cents.

                  The length of the cord speaks about special purpose knowing only by wearer an I also like tan camo helmet under the clip cover the same like mg box and both seems wear sidelaced boots , not bad for late war period..

                    Both wear the GM Bag over the smock, instead of inside. And the FJ with the ammo box appears to carry some additional equipment on his belly, inside the smock.
                    Interested in unaltered, green step-in FJ smock.

                        That "belly" is the result of tight leg straps of the harness, when tighten they move up, pushing the smock up too. I know that effect from dressing manneqins

                          You are exactly right. When you tighten up those leg straps it also moves up some other valuable equipment...........If you get what I mean.
                          Very good photos

                            Haha, my mistake! Obviously not a jumper myself....
