An original pair of British military physical training shorts, often referred to as 'P.T Shorts'.
This pattern of shorts was used for many years in both the British Army and Royal Air Force and could easily pass as a WW2 pair. Made from a deep blue cotton, the short feature and elasticated waist and a short button fly which fastens with black plastic buttons - the same style as found on RAF War Service Dress.
Inside the shorts retain their original label which is still partly legible. The title is present and reads 'Shorts P.T' and the size appears to be marked as 3. The War Department broad arrow is also visible.
Due to their elasticated waist the shorts will fit a number of waist sizes. When laid flat they measure 17" across the waist.
The shorts are in good condition with signs of wear and use. They are still very wearable and display well.
Altogether a nice pair of period shorts.
