    Very nice Bill! Use per what Luc said, and cited with a period pic ;) Kept the adjuster ears from digging into the back and tearing the uniform, etc., while bumping on a horse or motorcycle.

    I assume all of the canvas type covers you see a lot on ebay lately are fake/postwar?
    Are there any known examples of the green/blue canvas covers that were used (pre)WW2?
