were the puttees shorter by then? I know the helmet and clothing are OK otherwise.

You are correct Darren, the puttee wraps by WW2 were shorter below the knee. In saying that I have seen some images of Maginot Line Artillery defenders with the longer puttees (all Officers with the leather type gaiter)...like anything in the military depending where you are and when a resupp of uniform or equipment gets to you you have to wear and make do with what you have until then. So early WW2 dio would be fine.
