WWI uniform 3D Model
At the outbreak of WWI, the British army were the only side to have recognised the need for a drab uniform to provide camouflage on the battlefield. The 1902 pattern of uniform was plain in design, and easy to produce in large quantities. The use of General Service buttons on uniforms became standard, rather than the use of buttons specific to regiments. This meant that all regiments could be issued with a very standard uniform, with the addition of shoulder badges being used to specify the regiment, as seen in this example. In addition to the uniform, you can see some of the equipment worn by a WWI soldier on their webbing (the strapping that everything was carried on). This example includes a water bottle in its felt case, a haversack and a bayonet in its scabbard. In addition to these items, soldiers would also have been additional equipment including ammunition in a range of pouches, and an entrenching tool.
