trajan Posted 1 June , 2019 Share Posted 1 June , 2019 From Rudolf Binding's Aus dem Krieg for 23 April 1916, p.144, somewhere in West Flanders (freely translated) "The 108 English prisoners mentioned in the newspapers - not all captured by us [= his unit] we could have hidden as Easter eggs, they were so clean. They had beautiful steel helmets and exquisite leather jerkins, leather outside, wool inside, that we immediately kept for ourselves". Apart from the cleanliness aspect(!), this must be one of the earliest mentions of the Brodie and the leather jerkin also? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
