Re: Question about the 37 pattern water bottle

Comrades,
As the Water Bottle is Enamelled in many ways you avoid the metal problem, but if you drop or dent it you will get it scabbing off inside it, which is then is bad as Enamel is not good being eaten, it will rust and it will leak very easily if it landed on a Seam.

Re: Did the Soviets ever use Natural camoflauge?

Comrade, They used natural material to put under shoulder boards and the pleats of the Pilotka.
