1937 Canvas Gaiters often called anklets in the British Army and were issued to soldiers with the new 1937 battledress before the start of World War 2.
The 1937 gaiters are the second model issued to soldiers after the retreat from Dunkirk in 1940. The minor changes of the brass tips being removed were for economy reasons.
