A new three-part uniform has been issued to German troops on the Eastern Front, according to Swedish newspapers which quote Berlin. It consists of a hood, which may be pulled over the steel helmet, a coat, and breeches. Field-gray on one side and white on the other, the uniform may be reversed and used as camouflage.

The Japanese are also reported to have devised a reversible uniform in different colors for camouflage purposes.
