Israeli soldiers are now bigger than they were. An article in this week’s issue of Bamachane, the army weekly, says that new recruits now need shoes and boots size 41/44 and 42/45 according to the European measurements used in Israel, compared with size 41 and 42 ten years ago. Trousers and shirts are now also larger than they were a decade ago.
