    Hello,

    Prussian regular infantry worn white trousers in the summer but on campaign and in the colder seasons they worn a pair of overalls that varied from regiment to regiment between some base color of tan and some base color of gray.

    The thing of it is that I can’t seem to find anything that would indicate what color (tan or gray) any given regiment would wear. Uniform plates are handy for the units they choose to sample but I’ve never found a comprehensive listing. Anyone know the rhyme or reason to the color of overalls?

    Cheers,

    The Bandit

    Maybe it was mere expediency: they wore what was available. Especially in the field how reliable in terms of uniformity could it have been, even modern forces have issues with kit.
