I intend to sculpt and paint two members of the German Infanterie Regiment 463 who fought at the southern sector of Passchendaele between 26th and 31st October 1917.
After some research I bought a book about this unit which among others contain some pictures of the uniforms and equipment that this unit worn during their various battles. With my basic knowledge of German uniforms during the First World War I started off to have a closer look on the photographs in the hopes to determine what uniforms the men on the photographs are wearing.
- As such I think some of these men wear the 1915 Waffenrock with Brandenburger cuffs while others wear the 1915 simplified tunic-
Can you please tell me what you think about this assumption. Are there any things of interest that spring to your mind when looking at the photographs? What about their boots?
Your expertise and help is much appreciated.
