An original pair of RAF Ordinary Airman's trousers made in 1950 and identical to wartime pattern.
This pattern of trousers came into use with the RAF during the 1930s and stayed in service well into the 1950s. The trousers feature a fishtail back, a slash pocket to each hip and black horn brace buttons around the outside of the trousers.
The original label is no longer present but the War Department acceptance stamp is. It is surmounted by the letter 'B' which denotes 1950 as the year of issue.
The trousers are a tall size and will suit someone of around a 30" waist and when laid flat measure -
Waist - 15"
Inside leg - 33 1/2"
The trousers are in good condition with some small areas of staining and a few small moth nips which are illustrated in the pictures. Overall they are a very wearable pair of trousers but do have a couple of small issues consummate with age.
All in all a good pair of RAF OA trousers dating from just after the Second World War. They would fill a gap in a collection or could be used for re-enactment.
