Puttees are strips of cloth wrapped around the leg between the trousers and the boot. They were made to keep the soldiers legs warm, and to prevent anything from catching the trouser leg. During the first world war they were placed quite high up the leg, but they became shorter with time. http://www.aef-doughboys.com/leggings.html
