Hello,

the Romanian army started off with a grey-green uniform, but after the retreat to western Moldavia by 1917 had brownish -undyed wool uniforms.

Were these undyed uniforms worn by all troops in the reformed 1st and 2nd armies?

Or only supplied to certain units (infantry) or to anyone who needed new uniforms ?

The information i've seen never makes it clear.

Pat.

I'm not a big expert in uniforms, but as far as I know Romanian Army never wore ”brownish -undyed wool uniforms”, during WW1 two types of uniforms were used, the M1912 green-grey and the M1916 blue-grey, photo evidence shows the use of the both types during 1916 to 1919, the khaki colour uniform was introduced in 1921 but the M1912 and M1916 uniforms continued to be worn until 1927.
