Making uniforms

These two pictures come from America’s Munitions 1917-1918, a wonderful 825-pages you can freely download. It’s a mine of information about all material used by US Army during the Great War. As I am a great fan of US uniforms, I wanted to share with you these two pictures, which show the production of uniforms (above) and puttees (below). These two pictures show how industrial processes were used, even if those fields.



Peau de grenouille

(“frogskin” for those who don’t know French). I’ve found this picture by chance in the second volume of La Guerre documentée and I must confess I don’t know anything about it. As far as I can see, these soldiers are wearing a coat which is supposed to make them invisible, I suppose it has some camouflage on it. I didn’t find anything on Google, does someone know more than me about this topic?
