Here's a couple of links for photo's of the BEF.
Apparently, because BEF's own uniforms were thought to be unsuited for the Italian/European theatre they were issued with American uniforms.
The last link is a page dedicated to the Brazilian Expeditionary Force.
Hope it's of help,
Regards
WF

You’re welcome Pat, I only tried youtube as a last resort and I was very surprised at the amount of material that was posted there regarding Brazil, a little grainy maybe but very interesting.
For those who posted it, a vote of thanks.
Regards
WF

Just been looking at all of these links to Youtube etc , but still cannot makeout what type of ammunition pouches were worn by the Brazillians. French or German style pouches?
