IDF009 Lying Prone Para
Adopting the horizontal firing position this ‘trooper covers his buddies as they move forward towards another area.
Special Uniform Note:All the K&C Israeli Paras are wearing the locally-designed and made olive drab combat uniforms. Some photos show Paras wearing a mix of French-made “Lizard” pattern combat suits but these were beginning to be phased out at this time. The fighting order worn by Israeli troops in ’67 still shows a ‘mix’ of American, British, French and Israeli items. Para helmets too were a combination of American and British steel helmets usually covered with netting.
