I have a soft spot for these volunteers.
I hope to illustrate more of them soon.

Very nice. I unfortunately know nothing about the Falklands during the War. Did the British have any ASW aircraft based there or long-range maritime recce. aircraft? I only ask because of the islands' proximity to Argentina and that country's status as sort of an Axis-leaning neutral until it made the decision to declare (as a formality) for the Allies.

FIDF WWII

Post  wfrad on Sun 29 Mar 2015, 9:20 am

Itís not unknown for the British army to continue to issue old stock to reserve/volunteer units. †
Although itís possible for the FIDF to have worn the same uniform for twenty years, I would have thought that once the regular infantry arrived to help garrison the islands the FIDF may have received new uniforms.
I believe that thereís a Falklands history group. you may be able search for their details and ask if they have any photographs.
Not much help but the best I can come up with.
Regards
WF
