    Default Russian photo with different suspenders

    This recently appeared in Ebay- the photo is dated 1943. Any idea of where the field suspenders originated?They do not look Russian, (too fancy), the adjustment buckles do look Russian though. Estonian, Poland, other over run countries? Or prehaps Italian, hungarian and other Axis allies?? Or ?
    thanks

    I am somewhat amazed to find suspenders being worn with a M43 Tunic. I haven't yet seen a photo of suspenders being worn was late as 1943. They are definitely a new style to my eyes, I have only ever seen the style where the belt is fed through loops.

    Could this also be a photo of a soldier wearing a pre-war rucksack that snaps to the rings present on some ammunition pouches?

    I just noticed that there appears to be lack of a white collar lining sewn in as per regulations.

    and after your message, I looked again, and noticed the collar is adjusted to be smaller by moving the buttons to the right. I did that to a repro tunic and wondered if it was ever done, and it was.
    thanks- many eyes make more discoveries!
