BLANKET – GRAY WOOL ARMY WITH BLACK END STRIPES. MANY ARTICLES STATE THAT GRAY WOOL BLANKETS BEGAN IN 1917 BUT I CAN FIND NO
PROOF OF THAT IN ANY RESEARCH I HAVE DONE. WE KNOW THEY PRE-DATE WWI BUT COLOR WAS CHANGED TO OLIVE DRAB (OLIVE BROWN) IN ABOUT 1905/6. REGARDLESS, THIS IS A VERY NICE USEABLE BLANKET – MAY HAVE A SMALL SNAG OR A LITTLE EDGE WEAR. I SEE A LOT OF THEM BEING USED ON THE GERMAN SIDE IN THE “WARS”.
