How to describe in one word this Polish army footwear?


Probably "ambition".

Polish ambitions


The fact is that after the First World War, Poland, which became free, began to create its own army, focusing both on its own traditions and on the experience of neighboring countries.

The desire to shoe every infantryman in good-quality leather boots quickly ran into harsh realities - expensive.

So, as in the armies of Germany and the USSR, it did not work out.

High leather boots were given only to officers and cavalrymen.

For sappers introduced low. And the quality is worse. With soles from soldiers' boots.

But "Private Infantry Janek" got the 1931 model boots. When creating them, the influence of French "fashion" was clearly felt.

Take a look at the photo of the soles. Doesn't it look like anything?

True, they looked rather like the Parisian boots of the late period - the 1919 model.

They were "infantry chereviks" made of high-quality leather of cattle. Moreover, the sock differed from the top in the quality of processing.

Features


Average height. There were seven round eyelets for open lacing. And, of course, rivets that reinforce the top and bottom.

The sole is leather. It was reinforced with nails - spherical-headed spikes. The number of spines varied. But no more than 50 pieces per shoe.

The heel is also leather. I nailed it with carnations and had a horseshoe.

Color. This is where the fun begins.

In black and white photos, you can see that the color of the shoes is different in shades. With black everything is clear. And how to understand "gray" and "whitish" colors?

It turned out that both boots and boots for sappers were supplied in a light red, unpainted state! And there already - who in what way. Of course, with the blessing of the authorities. Shoemakers and soldiers, when the look of light-colored boots ceased to be dandy, repainted them both black and brown. There is information that sometimes they were also varnished. So initially the “chereviks” looked like this.

Polish troops

Shoes with cloth gaiters were worn. Although sometimes you come across images with typical windings. True, not high. These are most likely exceptions. As well as the low skewers from 1925.

Reserve from 1939


It is impossible not to mention one more boots. I cannot say for sure what they used in the Polish General Staff - the idea of ​​restoring Poland "from sea to sea" or the presentiment of a new war.

But in the mid-thirties, it was decided to develop a new boot model. So to speak, "mobilization" or "reserve".

They were supposed to be kept in warehouses. And in case of general mobilization - to be issued to conscripts.

They are referred to as "infantry cribs of the 1934/1939 model." Sometimes it's just "sample 1939".


The cut of the top has changed. There are nine pairs of eyelets. And the place under their location was reinforced with leather overlays. The color mentioned is brown. The outsole remains identical to its predecessor.

Complaints


But somehow, everything went wrong with this sample.

Summed up the calculations of shoe lasts. After the first shipments began to arrive at the warehouses, they were selectively sent to the troops for inspection. And from there complaints came.

If there were no complaints about the quality and strength, then the convenience left much to be desired.

The soldiers complained of an uncomfortable rise and a narrow toe.

The boots rubbed their feet and wore out for a very long time, as they were sewn from thick leather.

No wonder the Deputy Minister of Military Affairs, Brigadier General Alexander Litvinovich, in a letter dated April 30, 1938, to the Army inspector, Major General Tadeusz Piskor, presented the problem of using shoes from mobilization stocks.

In the letter, he described everything in detail and accurately enough. He also indicated the necessary ways to eliminate the size discrepancy.

Changes were made promptly. And new shoes began to arrive in warehouses.

Some of them were shod by mobilized Poles when, on September 1939, XNUMX, the first salvoes of the most terrible war in stories humanity.

    Another thing is interesting. After WW1, Poland, as a "child of Versailles", received a bunch of weapons they did not need from the allies. Couldn't you beg for captured German boots?

      Maybe they were begging, but they didn't get it
      Or maybe they just didn't give it, considering that they had already grabbed so much

      With boots in Afghanistan, problems arose - when the anti-personnel ground was blown up, a leg shod in boots suffered more than a leg shod in low shoes! Here is such a strange paradox, colleague.

        This is the first time I've heard of this, to be honest. When the ppm is detonated, in my opinion, it does not matter what the foot is in (unless the sneaker will fly further). Another thing is that it is not so convenient to climb mountains in kirzachs (especially worn ones) as in specialized shoes, and the boots are more tailored to the terrain and climate of the European type. There is no universal shoe, there is one that was privatized repeat

          Alas, there was such a medical study of the wounded in Afghanistan, and yes, the fighters in boots were seriously injured during explosions than in ... sneakers. In particular, due to the presence of metal nails in the sole of the boots

                The military doctor did not talk about nails, but about the impact of the bootleg (this is in his, the doctor's understanding) as an increase in the compression effect on soft tissues, resulting in gangrene and so on. trouble.

            Good evening, Sergey. hi
            Medical research is news to me, thanks for the information. Still, our army command was not completely stupid, no matter how scolded it was.
            I talked with the guys who had passed the Afghani and everyone talked about the convenience of sneakers and about the fact that the people in every way tried to get them for themselves, to the point that smart commanders bought them for their fighters from Afghans literally boxes. But the main emphasis in the stories was on climbing mountains and on marches, well, this is understandable - the sneaker is not a canvas shoe, it is much more comfortable and lighter, and the sole ... About the mountains from my friend who served there in the Airborne Forces.

              All these are bikes from the category of "adidas-olympics" - the hungry pounced on the muddle ... Not a single self-respecting mountain tourist (and indeed a "tourist") will take a jerk in "Czech women" into his group. Sneakers - just as not the best replacement for "rock shoes" except ... and a substitute in the camp. Shoes should be tight, toe protected, ankle. Then the soldier can fight day after day, for weeks and months. And in sneakers for one two exits and legs and sneakers themselves in a splash. Who will carry two or three substitutions with them?

              An important clarification - the dry climate made it possible to wear sneakers. A couple of rains, floods the bootleg + march = callus. By the way, where did you get so many socks? I can't imagine sneakers with footcloths

          We are talking about injuries - the military doctor shared with me in the hospital. He said that reconnaissance (they wore sneakers on raids) only amputated a foot, and infantry in a boot - knee-deep.

            Maybe, but it seems to me - these are all army tales. The only type of mines for which footwear can matter is, apparently, "Petals" PFM-1 (here I don't even know which is better: a thin sole of sneakers or a thick boot). For the rest, "Witches", "Widows", etc., in principle, it does not matter what is worn on the leg

          Hi Constantine. The Chekhovs had a normal army, only there was no fighting spirit and the government was very fearful.
          At the end of the mobilization, the Czechs had 21 infantry and four "fast" divisions. Plus another 1st PD, which was deployed to mobilize in the Prague District. A total of 26 divisions of field troops.
          There were also two "groups".
          Total: 40 and a half settlement divisions - 1,25 million people.
          The Germans in 1938 in Czechoslovakia confiscated: planes - 1582, anti-aircraft guns - 501, anti-tank guns - 780, field guns - 2175, mortars - 785, tanks and armored cars - 469, machine guns - 43876, rifles - 1090000, pistols - 114000, cartridges - more than a billion shells - more than 3 million, armored trains - 17.
          They helped "arm" the Wehrmacht well, actually throughout the War they worked tirelessly.

          "Lewis" weighed 11,8 kg. length 1283 mm.

            By the way, I was always interested in the question - why is the barrel cooling system not used now, like in Lewis? seemingly both effective and not heavy. Anything more convenient than replaceable barrels!

              Why not use it? Our domestic Pecheneg.
              The machine gun uses a system of forced air cooling of the barrel due to the energy of the powder gases. The adjustable gas venting mechanism allows Pecheneg to operate in any climatic conditions. The barrel has external ribbing and is enclosed in a metal casing. Powder gases, leaving the barrel, create a vacuum zone in the front of the casing. In the back of the casing, special ventilation windows are made. Thus, while firing, cold air is continuously pumped along the barrel. Constant barrel cooling reduces dispersion during firing and also increases barrel durability.
              The barrel resource is 25-30 thousand shots when firing in intensive modes.

          Looks like Zurab from the Comedy Club. In another revolutionary film they talked about Austrian boots, I don’t remember which one, maybe “Optimistic tragedy”, they say, “and copper rivets, here and there”. In the navy, such "reptiles" were called (work boots "yuft"), and the name in the literature can be traced back to tsarist times.
