    Default Use of the "French" tunics?

    Hi all,

    I'd like to ask a few questions about the use of "French" (френч) 4-pocket tunics that were similar to the British Service Dress uniforms, worn with both open and closed collar.

    Who would have been authorised to wear them, and when were they part of the uniform regulations? I've only seen examples of pre-war officers wearing them.
    In what scenario would they be used (service or parade uniform?)

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to find much information myself concerning this topic so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you again.

    Hello!

    I guess the photos you posted show the 3 December 1935 uniform regulation - closed collar for all officer and general corps except the armour and air force branch of service (those allowed the open collar).

    Perhaps for a start you might want to check the book "Soviet Military Uniform and Insignia 1918-1958" published in 1993. Lots of useful information there!

    Best regards
