I think I had brought this up recently in this forum but I don't remember for sure. Were the uniforms that were worn by RAF ground crews in North Africa the same uniforms they would have worn in England during the Battle of Britain? Seems to me you'd need something different for the hot desert Vs cold England?

I'm wanting to do a diorama of a 112 Squadron P-40 with ground crew preparing to take off for a raid on Rommel, and I'm wondering if the Airfix Battle of Britain figures are suitable/usable for the African theater?
