What does a nurse's uniform in World War 1 look like?
Trenches were very helpful for the soldiers in WW1! Trenches were around 7ft deep and built by the soldiers themselves, they could span for hundreds of km's. Some of the main …features of the trenches were.....Barbed wire, this was placed around 6 ft away from the top edge of the trenches. This was the 1st line of defence in the trenches to stop enemy soldiers entering the trenches.Fire step, this would help soldiers to get 'Over The Top'(out over the top of the trench) also it would help the soldiers get better aim when shooting out of the trench.Dug out, This was to protect soldiers whilst they were getting their well earned rest.Zig-zag formation, exetremly hard to take over as their could be an ambush around any of the corners, also strong against aerial bombings as the force of the force of the bomb couldn't sweep down a straight line it had to take out all the corners aswell.Machine gun posts, were strategically placed around trenches to gun down any on coming enemy soldiers.
Answer . They were basicly long muddy & narrow, they can be miles long, and apporx 5ft deep...soilders made them themselves and it could be very hard work, lots of diseases… could be catched in them. They were very good from being protected by gun shots but if toxic gas got in these things death would be close! They were stacked with sandbags lined with barbed wire and litterd with dead bodies. Some soilders were very proud of their trench but some just hated being in them.
The uniforms were normally a Karki or Grey colour. The uniforms were said to be very heavy and uncomfortable for the soldiers to wear. Therefore, they just didn't like t…he uniforms, but it wouldn't really matter when they were fighting in a war lol. The uniforms worn by the soldiers of the First World War were made of wool. This made them very uncomfortable in the summer, and constricting to move in. The boots were like today's running shoes, which sometimes were known to fall apart! The wool puttees wrapped around the soldiers legs made moving a challenge, but were a nice addition to the uniform in the winter months. The tunic was once again, wool. On the tunic were pockets and pouches for various things. One soldier could carry ammunition, their field dress kit, kit bag, and mess supplies on their back along with their rifle, bayonet, entrenching tool, personal affects, and many other things at one time! As you can imagine, running about in a charge in knee deep mud with all this on you was a challenge itself!
They wore red wool uniforms with black leather boots. In the colonies these uniforms didn't work very well. On hot humid days on the east coast they were very hot to wear. The…re was no air conditioning or fans and wearing wool suits buttoned up to the neck had to be awful. The red color also made them a good target.
They had large tents, structured for their needs.
Planes form WWI were made mostly of wood and fabric airfoils and fuselages. However the Germans did use steel tubing for fuselages and wood for the airfoils (wings). The Germa…ns did make an all metal monoplane (single wing) the Junkers DI but not in large numbers. These planes were powered by different types of engines. A Rotary engine spins with the propeller blade for cooling. The engine is round in shape with the cylinders extending from the center cam shaft. In line water cooled engines were also used. Bombers were first used in WWI and they usually had more than one engine using either a rotary to water cooled engine but not both in the same plane. When one thinks of a WWI airplane the bi-plane comes to mind (2 wings). But WWI saw many types of deviation's from this with mono, bi, tri and quadro-planes being designed tested and placed into service. (1, 2, 3 and 4 wings) The additional wings it was thought would provide better lift and performance. however these planes were mostly put together using a lot of wire rigging in between the wings to strengthen the plane to prevent the wings from ripping off when performing dogfights where severe forces act upon the wings (G Force). These wries caused more wind resistances and actually slowed down the plane from drag. The planes were covered with a fuel resistant doped fabric for the most part. Although the Germans did use an all wooden design in the Albatros fighter planes, the D series and the Junkers all metal plane the DI. By the end of the war fighter planes were reaching speeds on 120 mph and altitudes of 25,000 feet.
In general, the Union forces had dark blue uniforms. The Confederate troops wore mostly gray. Both sides had units that wore uniforms that were of other colors.
It had an overcoat/trenchcoat, field cap, web gear, puttees, boots, and a dull colored uniform blouse and pants.
WW1 was the last great imperial war, and the cut of its uniforms still reflected a spirit of imperialism. Tunics and pants were close-fitting, and if high boots were not… worn the pants were gathered from ankle to knee. Yet, the increasing range of weapons inspired the use of bland colors like US olive drab, British khaki (dust), and German feldgrau (field gray) to make soldiers less visible to the enemy. Also, specialized uniform accessories were invented as military technology improved. On the Western Front, the trench coat was introduced to protect the uniform from mud. Aviation personnel wore army uniforms with a fur-lined leather flight jacket and a leather flight helmet with goggles. Navy uniforms were not affected in terms of design or color, with white and dark blue remaining ever popular. A variety of hats were worn, but in 1916 most countries adopted steel helmets because head wounds from shrapnel had produced more casualties than machine gun bullets. Many imperial uniform elements were continued in WW2 and beyond, and the officer's peaked cap is still worn in numerous armies, navies, and air forces today. However, modern combat uniforms are loose-fitting, unattractive, and functional. I like to think of the WW1 uniform as the transitional midpoint of the old and the new in military uniform design. [Many photos of WW1 uniforms should be available on the Internet, but their color will be difficult to discern as color photography was not implemented until the 1930s. Also, many movies have been made about WW1, and even if the movie is bad, the uniforms will have a high degree of historical accuracy.]
The British Army uniform is a loose fitting garment with a turned down or "rolled" collar, rifle patches on the shoulders, patch pockets on the breast and side pockets l…et into the skirts below the waist. The 1902 pattern British tunic has plain removable shoulder straps while the British 1907 pattern tunic has sewn down cloth shoulder straps. This is the pattern that most British army troops went to battle in. hope this helps!

Extremely dirty, often filled with knee-deep waste, and scattered corpses. There were rats the size of cats, and most soldiers slept standing up. The trenchs were not a pleas…ant place to be, and many soldiers claimed the stench of waste and dead bodies could be smelled miles away.
The battle uniform of the British Soldiers during the First World War are as follows; * Service Boots; coloured brown * Puttees; khaki colour (in exception to the Royal… Newfoundland Regiment who were given blue puttees at one time) * Khaki pants and buttoned tunic * Helmet; sometimes with chinstrap * Bayonet * Rifle; Lewis or Ross Officers were equipped with a pistol opposed to the private's rifle.
Answer There was no single uniform for WWI, or WWII, for that matter. It depends on the country and branch of service. in the trenches the infant…rymen wore pants and boots, and jackets. The boots were actually more like shoes, covering only the ankles, and requiring cloth leggings or puttees (strips of cloth wrapped like a bandage) to keep dirt out and provide ankle support. Officers got taller boots, which were shiny. In bad weather they wore trench coats (hence the name) The trench coats had openings in the pockets so they could reach the stuff they normally carried without having to rearrange it all. The English and American infantrymen (I don't know about the French) had helmets that were semicircular and flared out at the edge. If you picture a "doughboy" that is what they looked like. The German helmets were taller and less bowl-shaped. Some of the officers had points on top. Each side had its own gas mask designs, and these changed frequently as newer and more deadly poison gases were invented throughout the war. The airmen of WWI wore very different gear than those in WWII. First, they had no parachutes. Towards the very end of the war, Germany did start to employ them. The aviators in WWII had jumpsuits with harnesses and places for their radios and air masks to hook on. over this they wore modern bomber jackets. The guys in WWI had no such luxuries, since radios at the time were too big and tempermental, and their cockpits were open and unpressurized. They wore jodhpurs and uniform jackets, under "teddy bear suits" which consisted of big fur-lined leather jackets that went to their knees sometimes, and big warm fur or leather boots. Of course they all had gloves, caps, and goggles. I know the regular uniform for the French air force (the Aeronautique Militaire) was grayish blue and had little squarish caps with a short bill in front. The Royal Flying Corps (British air force) had black uniforms because they were part of the Navy. After the war they became the Royal Air Force and got their own dark blue uniforms. I don't know much specifically about the German air force uniforms, but I know if got a Blue Max (the highest medal) and certain other medals, you had to wear them all the time. There were all kinds of special uniforms for various regiments and other things, like the particularly dashing outfits of the Australian Light Horsemen (watch "Gallipoli" to see a young Mel Gibson wearing it). Some of the Scottish regiments wore kilts, even in combat.
So they could tell who to kill and not kill.
In World War 1
They looked like omg xd xoxoxox
