Proposal for a New French Uniform


From a 1911 Issue of l'Illustration

Color photos of the 1911 proposal for new French army uniforms.
Note the uniform color : it is very similar to German field-gray.
Ultimately this proposal was not accepted and the French army went to war in 1914 in the traditional red and blue uniform.
