An original pair of British Army 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers in good condition.
These trousers came into use with the British Army in the 1960s and were based on the 1952 Pattern uniform issued to British troops serving in Korea. They would have been issued as part of a set which included a matching combat jacket.
The trousers are made from a plain olive green coloured cotton satten and feature a First Field Dressing pocket to the right hip and a map pocket to the left thigh. The trousers also have reinforced knees, slash pockets to the hips and belt loops. A metal zipper closes the fly and is marked 'Flash' to the front and 'Made in Gt Britain' to the reverse.
Inside the trousers both original labels are still present. One label is an instruction label whilst the other is the issue label which is sadly been washed out.
When laid flat the trousers measure -
Waist - 16"
Rise - 14"
Rear rise - 17 1/2"
Inside leg - 28 1/2"
Outside leg - 40 1/2"
Cuff - 8"
The condition of the trousers is very good with some signs of wear and use. They display well and are still very wearable but are of course a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age. Please study the pictures before purchasing.
All in all a good pair of combat trousers from the 1960s.
