SOLD


An original pair of 1940 Pattern (Austerity) Battledress trousers dated 1945 and in good condition.

This pattern of trousers came into issue in 1942 replacing the earlier 1940 pattern. These are an austerity pattern which don't feature belt loops, covered pockets or tabs to the bottom of the legs as the earlier patterns did.

This particular example no longer retains its original factory label but does still bare the War Department WD stamp to the interior. This features the War Department broad arrow marking which is surmounted by the letter 'Z' which denotes 1945 as the year of issue. The lining also bares the original owners name 'Bellamy 8651’ written in ink.

The trousers are a good size measuring at 16 3/4” across the waist and 29” on the inside leg.

The condition of the trousers is average with signs of wear and use. They are an authentic and original pair and have various stains and wear to match this. There are no serious issues and they display well but please study the pictures as these form part of the description.

Altogether a good original pair of war dated trousers in wearable condition. These would male a good addition to any WW2 collection.
