M.1907/10 Waffenrock

(M.1910 Waffenrock)—The 1907/10 Waffenrock (usually just referred to as a „Rock” or “1910”) was the uniform that the German Army wore when it went to war in 1914 and it continued to be issued or reissued throughout the confl ict. The back of the 1910 has a scalloped tail with hidden pockets. This tunic also has exposed brass Prussian crown buttons throughout, and has red piping around the collar, down the front fly, around the cuffs and along the back scallops.

The 1910 Rock used by members of Inf.Rgt. 23 shall have the following specific unit details: The sleeves shall have the “Brandenburg” style cuffs and scalloped tail. The epaulets (Achselklappen) shall be of the same shade as the tunic and piped in white (the Waffenfarbe for Infantry). The number “23” shall be ‘chain-stitched’ in red wool yarn on the epaulets; Also needed are two #1 (or #3) Kompagnie buttons for the shoulderboards.
