The two external pockets (side hips) were closed with rectangles lids without buttons while the split rear belt buckled with three large tin buttons dyed khaki. The two epaulets buttoned with 2 small buttons and in accordance with the Regulation of 1938, the collar had restyled escaping from the old design while a small piece of cloath fastens with a small button allowing the collar to close more, protecting the head from the elements of nature.
