Original 1949 Pattern Battledress Trousers - Heavily Tailored

Code: 50482

SOLD

An original pair of British Army 1949 pattern trousers which have been heavily tailored and originally belonged to a rather tall Warrant Officer.

The trousers started life as an issue pair of 1949 pattern trousers but the original owner had them heavily tailored. The flapped pockets have all been changed for 1937 pattern style pockets with a covered button which gives the trousers a very smart look. The waistband appears to have been altered and the waist adjuster look like they have been moved. Overall the trousers have been heavily tailored for the smartest fit.

The trousers are a very tall size with a 34" waist and a 35" inside leg making them ideal for a re-enactor.

The overall condition of the trousers is very good indeed but there are a couple of small flaws. There is a very small moth hole to the front of the trousers and the cuff of each leg is fraying. Both of these are pictured so please study the pictures before purchasing.

A very nice pair of original post-war battledress trousers unlike any other! They would compliment any collection certainly or could be used by a tall re-enactor.
