Interesting uniforms ,would these be summer uniforms? I know that Sean has done an illustation with a Columbian soldier in a greenish uniform. RAja.

I think the greenish uniform was the winter wool field & service uniform and the beige coloured one shown in the parade photos was the summer cotton uniform. In the intervening months I saw a Colombian modeler's sculpture of an infantryman from 1948 and he was wearing a greatcoat of the same colour as Sean's illustration of the wool uniform as well as wearing a German M1916 helmet.
