Does anyone know what differences there might be between socks we would knit today and socks that would have been knitted for the CW soldier? I want to do a pair of CW socks for my husband, and I want to make them as authentic as possible. I just don't know where to look for an authentic pattern. Help?

The AGSAS pattern is in the process of being revised because it is made with too thick wool - most CW socks were made with fingering weight wool. AGSAS is supposed to be posting a new pattern any day now.
