4317: Late War German Wooden Sole Boots

This is a pair of late war boots issues to troops in non-critical areas. Some folks believe these were for concentration camp issue, however they were getting far less then this.

One account of this type of army issue was on a documentary on the History channel. A vet told a story, and the key detail to set the story up was describing these boots. The punch line is that he and his nervous buddies opened up on an unfortunate wandering horse late one night in a small french town.

A gentleman I visit on a regular basis was a boy in Czechoslovakia and told me of the garrisoned troops near his home taking these and "donating" their good boots to the troops on the Russian front, and how mad the soldiers would get at the kids for laughing at the sound of the wooden soles on the street.
