AT. M. Glinka, historian, writer, expert on Russian military form, wrote about this picture: "This scene depicts how, on the command of a new sentry, a sheepskin coat from a comrade he replaces. Holding the gun for "Shayka", He dives with his left hand into the liberated sleeve of the sheepskin coat, while the replaced soldier, speaking from behind the back of the new sentry, keeps up with the second sleeve to throw it off and put him in the second sleeve".
