An excellent example of RAF OA trousers dated 1950 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 O.A. Size 16' and the 1951 date can be seen at the bottom of the label.
Although the label states the sizes and the trousers don't appear to be altered the actual measurements when laid flat are a 30" waist and 30 "inside leg.
The trousers are in excellent condition showing no signs of wear or moth damage aside from two tiny pinpricks which are only noticeable on very close inspection. The blue serge still retains its deep blue colour it would have had out of the factory. These are not a tired, worn out and washed pair of trousers, rather a well looked after original pair of RAF trousers.
Overall a fantastic pair of trousers which display very well and would suit the collector and re-enactor alike!
