    Hi, I recently got this gimnasterka with a nice 1953 stamp with no double pocket and I was wondering if this type of cotton material (in Russian it’s х/б) is seen on war time model 1943 gimnasterkas.

    I have seen gimnasterkas made of lend-lease cotton that has a light-khaki color and is smooth to the touch.

    I’ve heard that they issued cotton gimnasterkas during summertime and wool ones during colder times?

    If I’m correct non-officers were obligated to wear model 1943 gimnasterkas with pockets only after autumn of 1944 and the pocketless ones were made of cotton while the ones with pockets were made of wool?

    Could this material have been used during late 1944-1945 to make gimnasterkas with pockets for non-officers while the ones for officers were made of wool?

    Last picture I think is from 1944 (YaK-9 in the backround ).

    Thank you for answering my questions.
