1970s British Army[edit]

Personal knowledge, though I'm sure there are pictures out there, in the 1970s the British Army used essentially the same bandage as an ankle gaiter. See here for brief text-only reference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:32, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Now added to article but with different ref. Thanks for highlighting this. Alansplodge (talk) 22:15, 2 May 2013 (UTC)


In the spirit of this page as a discussion can I ask; is there any relationship between puttees and pampooties type of footwear formally worn by Aran Islanders off the West coast of Ireland? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:18, 19 May 2011 (UTC)


Puttee looks very similar to the Korean daenim (대님) for men. Komitsuki (talk) 07:18, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

"serving both as a support and protection" supporting what? protecting what?[edit]

Also the article implies I misunderstood what puttees were; I thought they were a substitute for socks, but they appear to be worn over the trousers. If this is correct, perhaps make this explicit. (talk) 15:34, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Søgårds Mose Man Photo[edit]

There is a photo of a bog boy [sic], "Søgårds Mose Man" but the text doesn't reference it and the photo seems more to resemble gaiters. Maybe it doesn't belong here? --Theodore Kloba (talk) 15:58, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
