AAn original pair of 1940s navy blue sports shorts which are the same pattern as those issued to members of the Royal Navy during the Second World War.

This style of shorts was used by the British Army, RAF and Royal Navy during the Second World war for physical training and were often referred to as 'PT Shorts'. The shorts are made from a lightweight, blue coloured cotton drill and feature an elasticated waist. A small patch pocket is located to the interior and belt loops are fitted around the waist. These details are sometimes found on shorts made by 'Bukta' which may be an indication to who originally made these.

The shorts are elasticated so can fit a number of sizes around a 28" - 32" waist. When laid flat they measure 14" and when stretched out they measure 17".

The shorts are in good condition with signs of wear and use along with some staining which is reflected in the price. They appear to be sound and wearable but please study the pictures and bear in mind that they are a vintage, pre-owned pair of shorts.

Altogether a nice pair of original 1940s shorts ideal for both the collector and re-enactor.
