An original pair of 1950 dated RAF Ordinary Airman's trousers which are identical to wartime produced examples.
This pattern of trousers came into use with the RAF during the 1930s and stayed in service well into the 1950s. The trousers are made from an RAF blue-grey coloured serge wool and feature a fishtail back, a slash pocket to each hip and black plastic brace buttons around the outside of the trousers. More of the same buttons are used to fasten the fly.
The original label is still present inside the trousers and is still bright and legible. It bears the title of 'Trousers, O.A.' and the size of 21. The 1950 date is present as is the War Department broad arrow marking on the maker's name of 'S. Simpson Ltd'.
The trousers will suit a 32" - 33" waist and when laid flat they measures -
Waist - 16 1/2"
Inside leg - 30"
The overall condition of the trousers is good with only limited signs of wear and age. They are still wearable and display well but are a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A good pair of trousers which would be ideal for a WW2 re-enactor or for a mannequin due to their larger size.
