    Dear all.

    Could a war time M 43 tunic have such pocket? Exactly like pre/early war officer. Same cut and same style internal pocket- loop and button closure, not buttonhole. War time metal button. Clean shoulders- no evidence of straps or loops. Most buttons were war timers, some post war. Factory made piece, no stamps. Material was, I think Lend-Lease.

    Hello, NKVD's M43 Gym have external Pockets (in different cut and style) and were often made in lend-lease fabric. I have many models in my own collection. But this one picture is not enough to judge .

    Hi Guy.

    Thanks for the reply. NKVD have scalloped pockets? The material on the one I saw was not Lend-Lease actually but Russian.

    Hello

    Difficult to respond with just the photo.

    Additional photos may help but this looks like M35 officer's Pocket.

    Hi Bruno.

    Yes, the pocket pictured is M35 infantry officer blouse. The one I saw was factory made M43 (not altered M 35) and had exactly same style pocket with exactly same style inner pocket.
