    Default Dutch m12 /m16 uniform photos (WW1) ?

    Hello,

    i believe the Dutch introduced their grey-green uniforms m12 or m16 just before or during WW1.

    Are there any photos of these early uniforms worn during WW1 , perhaps with full equipment ?

    As the Dutch did not take part in WWI, I am not sure if many pictures survive or what they would show. The same uniform was worn through to WWII and pictures from that period do exist. Here are some from the Dutch army museum in Delft and hopefully this might help you. I cannot say how much the equipment had changed apart from the helmet before the start of WWII.
