Actually, I don't find wools that hot, to be honest. I wore them for Ariel and was reasonably comfortable.

Sorted out my belt order. K98 pouches, breadbag with water bottle clipped on, Feldspaten and bayonet, Zeltbahn attached to the belt. Gasmask cannister with gasplane in rubberised pouch on the front. Tornister containing messtins and food on the day, clipped onto the K98 pouches. Belt hooks, and no Y-straps required. :good:

It's OK, we'll wait until we are almost ready to go in the morning and hide his Tornister. :whistle: :twisted:

I noticed at Ariel that whilst the allies rapidly degenerated into slovenly shirt sleeve order and looked like so many tramps, the Germans, without a word having to be said by officers, remained spankingly smart all day in their field gray wool jackets. Well done lads! :lol:
I shall be wearing my M36 woolen jacket. :good:

Yes, the German army is where the phrase 'smartly defeated' comes from. :P

Dignified, even in defeat, I think you mean. :wink:
I read somewhere that the German soldier didn't like his uniform as he thought it old fashioned and wanted something more modern like the British battle dress. No accounting for taste is there.
