Hello guys a couple of quick questions, is it true that some troopers didn't wear reserve chutes when jumping into Normandy because they were so weighed down with equipment there was simply no room?
Secondly did some units in the 101st wear the flotation belts usually worn by seaborne troops because of shortages with the Mae West?
Thanks in advance for any help
Regards, Paul
