TIGER 331 STOPPED FOR CHOW: Eat fast sitting down, or standing up its the same in any army. Looks like a cold and windy day. PLEASE SIR, CAN I HAVE SOME MORE: Frederic, do you think if we give the Mess Sergeant more cigarettes, we can have a second helping?

The German Army developed the first parkas for use during the winter of 1942/43. Photograph shows the heavy coat with hood mittens and trousers looks like the troops are also wearing insulated boots, you have a mix of white, field-gray and camouflaged uniforms.
