About folding bicycles:
Bicycles were used widely on all sides during WWII but BritishArmy paratroopers used a lightweight bicycle with a twist - or rather, a fold. The bicycle could be folded in two along hinges in the frame centre to make it easier to carry.
About the uniform:
The figures can be portrayed with maroon beret or compact paratrooper issue helmet, and are depicted in a camouflaged smock.
