Q. re CWW (Cold,Wet, Weather) Boots, photographs?

Recommended Posts

 

Anyone got any photographs of the CWW boots (Korean War era)? I'm especially interested in the soles and how the commando soles are screwed on. Before and after shots of soles would be fantastic and a quick shot of the uppers.

Sorry, Old Git, can't really help.  I was issued with a pair of these in the 1960s for an exercise in Cyprus in the summer, and by the end of three weeks the soles were worn out!  I had them resoled, had a leather extension sewn round the top so that gaiters would stay on (and not just ride above them), and used them for some years, but I no longer have them.

Thanks Chris, I was pretty sure someone has posted pics of them before but they seem to have been lost in the great Photophuket hissy fit!

Not exactly relevant to your inquiry, but back in the '60s when I was in training they were known as cobbly wobblies. Thought you might like to know.

Thanks MatchFuzee, exactly what I needed to see...although I must confess I wasn't expecting to see standard slot head screws. Don't know what I expected but it wasn't that!
