U.S. Infantryman in Raincoat Pointing, 1943-45

The raincoat (officially: M1938 Raincoat, Synthetic Resin Coated, Olive Drab, Dismounted) was a prized possession of any soldier who had one in the wet and dreary conditions of the ETO in winter and spring of 1943-45. Earlier models were made of heavy duty rubberized canvas, which was burdensome but effective. In 1942 the Quartermaster Corps tried a number of different substitute materials due to the rubber shortage, but none were fully satisfactory. The M1941/M1943 field jackets worn by most troops were shorter and more practical than the M1938 (they allowed the wearer to be more mobile), but they did not keep one quite as dry and did not cover the user’s bottom as well when seated on the muddy ground or in a fox hole.
