Danish post WWII uniforms: 1945-1970s
The Second World War had left the Danish army in ruins. The Germans had taken most of its uniforms and almost all of its equipment. The Danish Brigade in Sweden (1943-45) had brought with it a limited supply of uniforms and equipment, but nothing that would last for a prolonged period of time. Something had to be done.
The Danish army (and department of defence) turned towards The Allied Forces and received a lot of old British equipment: Pattern 1937 webbing, lorries, Lee-Enfield riffles, artillery, Jeeps, uniforms, planes, etc. And it did not last long before the Danish army made international orders for own specialised equipment - they did for instance order a large amount of specially designed webbing equipment from the international company Mills Equipment Company - one of the companies that had supplied the British army with Pattern 1937 webbing during the war.
The special relationship with the British were not to last. By the end of the 1940s and in the beginning of the 1950s, the USA began overtaking the weapon and equipment aid, and a new range of equipment was introduced. The M1 helmet in 1948, the Garand in the 1950s and so forth. In the end, the only really visible remnants of the British equipment aid were the webbing and the M/44 uniforms.
