    Default M1955 over coat

    I got a Construction branch great coat in field Gray. Its the Parade version with sown on shoulder boards in gray with one red strip and two Gold Stars. Six Gold buttons in two rows on front with |_| shape following.. Has High French Cuffs. There is no piping on it at all. Collar Tabs are Black Felt with a pin witch has a Bulldozer in it.. A pic of that is here
    .

    For some reason the Greatcoat has Light Tan Sand in the pockets.

    P.S. I put the CAP's on the main stuff for Me and Others to find stuff easier.

    It's a military-construction unit's (Stroibat), most of undesirable troops in USSR, due of soldeiers in that service was mostly without education or just a silly guys.
    It's a joke about that:- Two soldiers from stroibat- can replace a dozer.
    Or another joke:
    USA intillegence serviceman back from USSR and his chief ask him:- Which from the Soviet special troops in USSR are most powerfull?
    ....There some special troops where in service evil peoples, they are equiped with showels only
    Commander: Why?
    They are so evil- that the Soviet commanders affraid to give them a weapons...
    I'am not a specialist in post-war militaria, but the emblem looks to me as a 1955 year. Before that- construction troops was a part of engeneering units, IMO
