nikp Posted 10 February , 2018 Share Posted 10 February , 2018 Hello all. Just a question regarding the strictness of what was and was not allowed . My Grandfather served in the RAMC ( his picture is the one used in the Imperial War Museum as an example of the RAMC uniform) and I am trying to recreate the same uniform. However he always had a pair of leather gaiters/leggings and I wonder whether a private would have been allowed to wear these? I am also aware that he had a pair of private purchase boots and again was he allowed to wear these. Was there much discretion in the wearing of " non standard " uniform. I have seen him in a pair of cut off shorts which I guess were modified from a pair of long trousers. Any info gratefully received . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
