Manufacturing fur coats for the military

Unused.

 

An interesting photograph depicting the interior of a small workshop producing fur coats for the military.

 

Every battalion was issued 50 sets of fur or sheepskin coats and felt boots for their sentries. As there were no regulations governing the specifications of the coats until 1917, numerous different styles can be seen throughout this collection.
