WWI US ARMY M1917 DISMOUNTED RAIN COAT JACKET RAINCOAT. When the US Entered WWI, only the Cavalry had raincoats, the Infantry still being issued the M1911 poncho. While all available raincoats were issued to the Infantry as a stopgap, eventually this newly developed raincoat became standard issue for all dismounted soldiers of the AEF. THESE ARE CUT A SIZE LARGER, TO ALLOW TO FIT OVER A UNIFORM.
