An original pair of 1940s blue sports shorts made by 'Bukta'.
This style of shorts was used by the British Army and RAF during the Second World war for physical training and were often referred to as 'PT Shorts'. Whilst these were an issue item, it is not uncommon to find civilian examples such as this as part of uniform groupings.
The shorts are made from a lightweight, blue coloured cotton drill and feature an elasticated waist. Inside the shorts the original label is present which is a typical 1940s Bukta label.
The shorts are elasticated so can fit a number of sizes around a 30" waist. When laid flat they measure 14" and when stretched out the measure 17 1/4".
The shorts are in good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. They have clearly been laundered as they are slightly faded out but overall appear to be sound and wearable.
Altogether a nice pair of original 1940s shorts ideal for both the collector and re-enactor.
