Trench coats’ existence is claimed by 2 people; Thomas Burberry and Aquascutum. Aquascutum’s claim dates as far as 1850 while Burberry claim is in 1901. These coats were optional dress items for officers and Warrant Officers Class 1 but no other in the British army. These coats were modified to the point that they were able to hold hand grenades and rank insignia. The addition of the D-ring to these coats is what got them the name, trench coats.
Later on, these coats were adapted by Soviet Union, United States of America, Holland, France, Poland, and Germany.
