About this product
- DescriptionIn the 1930s the War Office grew increasingly aware of the need for a new and more rational combat dress, and by 1937 the design for what would become kwn as 'battledress' was complete. Though the change in uniform was initially disappointing to the British soldiers, the new battledress served its purpose well, clothing the servicemen for more than 25 years with reasonable warmth and convenience. Complete with a wealth of photographs, diagrams and colour plates, this book offers a history of British battledress up to 1961, detailing its evolution in design, materials, sizes and applied insignia.
