    Not far I got this old photo, may be it will be interesting in this thread.

    It show old russian flight leather jacket wear by Mi-1 heli pilot.
    These picture from my old friend Victor, former helicopter pilot . Photo was taken in early 1950-s by his Mi-1 instructor, pilot Igor Tsimelman (unfortunately Igor has already died).

    It never been published anywhere - photo from Victor's home archives.

    original wwll-50s soviet belt backs show up now and again, but are usually in poor condition, as they were kept in the service and passed along from a discharged officer to the next incoming airman. also, when they are available, they are often in larger sizes, ie: 42, 44, 46.

    Apparently yes, as the old people said, at that time was increasing wolves population, violating the natural balance and severely cutting sheep and causing great damage and were periodically shot back in Kakhakhstan.
