Overcoats (Figure 5:16)

5.20 Overcoats (Figure 5:16)

Two overcoats with the sleeves turned inside out and poles slid through them make a good stretcher.

Do up all the buttons on the front of each coat and if necessary, use nails to close the tail flaps.

The coats are placed head to tail with the fronts of the coats uppermost.

Heavy shirts or overalls can also be used in the same manner.
