An original pair of 1944 dated 1937 pattern tall gaiters in a size 3.
This pattern of gaiters is still a bit of a mystery. It is believed that they were issued to the Royal Navy and marines and many war date examples, such as these, have been found over the years. They are made from the usual webbing material used during the Second World War but are twice as tall as the standard 1937 pattern anklets. They feature brass buckles and leather tabs as well as a reinforced leather section to the bottom.
Inside the leggings are marked with the maker's initials, the 1944 date and the size of 3.
The gaiters are in very good condition and look to be unissued. Please study the pictures before purchasing.
A good example of this hard to find pattern of webbing.
