Steel Waistcoats

Recommended Posts

I have a copy of an order for a trench raid and it states:

"The leading Bayonet Men of each storming and blocking party, the Officers commanding Raiding Companies and all signallers other than linesmen will also wear steel waistcoats."

Now I am thinking Ned Kelly's breast plate armour here! Surely not?
