Leather: an important material for defence
Many articles made of leather are required by the Armed Forces, the most important being army boots and sadlery. The kinds of leather needed for making them are the heavy leathers, viz., sole and harness and medium substance leather for army footwear uppers. The best available heavy buffalo and cow hides must be used, the former for making sole and harness and the latter for army footwear uppers. The techniques of manufacturing these leathers must also be of the highest possible order and the processes should be scientifically controlled.
