I also wore puttees from 1957 to 1967 or 68, when they became a casualty of integration/unification.
Little known factoid: all the corps in the army wore their puttees with the end starting at the bottom and circling upwards except for the gunners. We started ours at the top and worked down. Don't ask me why, or I'll say something like we were the only ones in step again.
