A good example of RAF Ordinary Airman's trousers dated 1952 but identical to wartime pattern.
This pattern of trousers came into use with the RAF during the 1930s and stayed in service well into the 1950s. The trousers feature a fishtail back, a slash pocket to each hip and black horn brace buttons around the outside of the trousers.
The original label is still present inside the trousers and nice and clear. It states 'Trousers, Service Dress O.A. Size 27'. The 1952 date is in evidence as is the War Department broad arrow marking and manufactures name. The trousers are designed to fit up to a 34" waist and have a 32 1/2" inside leg so are a good taller size which would suit a re-enactor.
The overall condition of the trousers is good with only limited signs of wear and age. There is a small hole to the lower right leg as shown in the pictures but generally speaking the condition is reasonable for their age.
A good pair of trousers which would be ideal for a WW2 re-enactor or for a mannequin due to their larger size.
