Sweaters were on issue from military stores and were also supplied by institutions such as The Canadian Red Cross. Thousands were knitted by soldiers' relatives. Military issue sweaters were usually of Canadian, British or American manufacture. They were often modified by the addition of epaulettes and pencil pockets, especially in the case of those worn by officers.
