Danish pre war uniforms: 1910-1940
The Danish uniforms prior to the outbreak of WWII had undergone some tremendous changes.
Prior to the first world war, the Danish army briefly took up the idea of an uniform in a more "neutral" colour than the beloved dark blue uniforms used during the wars against Prussia and Holstein in 1848-50 and 1864. The development in military technology and tactics had forced larger powers (for instance the British) to adapt more neutral colours and Denmark followed in 1903 with a grey-green uniform with brown leather gear. It proved short lived as the production was terminated already in 1906. However the Royal Guards continued to use the 1903 uniform for a while longer than any other units.
In 1910 the dark blue uniform was reintroduced with black great coat and black leather gear. The jacket was now single breasted, with scarlet colour facings.
The First World War saw the introduction of the 1915 uniform. The first proper field uniform since 1903. The 1915 uniform was made of a light grey cloth - but in the same cut as the 1910 uniform and with scarlet facings for the infantry, maroon facings for support units (artillery, engineers, etc.).
In 1923 the Danish army introduced a karkee coloured uniform (more correctly: yellow-brown) - seen right. The M/23 uniform continued with few alterations until 1940 (1943).
