Product Code: ru567
Price: Sold

Description

Soviet Russian M43 Gymnasterka jacket for private, US lend lease wool made, salty example with simplified cuff ends. The infantry shoulder straps are original but applied postwar. Most original straps (approx. 90 %) used by soldiers during the war were modified by adding inside the straps different hardener materials to make them firm  (they use what they find: overcoat wool, pieces of wood, hard paper, rubber, leather, or mess kit/german mg boxes/aircraft aluminum, or even brass from the shell cases).
