The Action Man UN Peace Force outfit from the Internationals range was a basic uniform that needed further accessorisation to give it play value. The beret had a paper sticker that is often lost, the one in the image below has been recreated using reference materials. The armband has a simple popper fixing. The short sleeve shirt gives this uniform away, and it is of a lightweight fabric. The 'current' Action Man in 1979 was the dynamic body Eagle Eyes figure (introduced year before).
