Message 1 - Uniform

Posted on: 14 March 2005 by Peter - WW2 Site Helper

He seems to be wearing a WW1 uniform. The WW2 battledress tunic had smaller buttons, larger collar, pointed pocket flaps, pockets flat. A 1937 example can be seen here http://www.reenact.com/UK37168a.jpgAbout links Later the buttons were all covered over as seen here http://www.replicaters.com/image009.jpgAbout links although some infantry regiments kept the uncovered buttons right through WW2 and beyond.
