    Hi guys,can I please get these translated?.These are the first pair of navy putees I've owned, would they have belonged to an officer because of them having the white diamond instead of the square tag or stamp? I thought IJN officers wore tall or low quarter boots. Thank you in advance, Bill.Please translate

    Officers wore the navy blue puttees too, although based on most period photos it seems they definitely preferred leather gaiters with their low boots.

    It's hard to know if they were discontinued or worn until the end of the war. In theory they should have been discontinued in mid 1944 when the navy switched to a year round service uniform, but I've heard of some officers in training during 1945 still wearing these navy blue puttees.
