An original pair of British Khaki Drill private purchase trousers as worn throughout the Second World War.
These trousers are typical of those issued to men serving in the British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy any other units during the Second World War. Indian made clothing such as this saw widespread issue in both the Middle East and Far East as the supply lines were shorter than shipping from other parts of the world.
The trousers are made from the standard Khaki Drill cloth used for trousers and shorts and feature slash pockets to each hip and no rear pocket. The button fly fastens with standard stamped brass buttons as commonly found on WW2 British uniform items and the front of the trousers feature twin pleats.
The trousers are a smaller size and when laid flat measure -
Waist - 14 1/4"
Inside leg - 29"
Cuff - 10 1/4"
The trousers are in good condition but have had plenty of wear previously. They are still sound and wearable but have some marks and stains. There is a small hole to the front of the waistband where the inner button has worn through but overall they display well.
A nice pair of original WW2 period trousers in wearable condition. These would make a great addition to a collection or could suit a re-enactor.
