Original WW2 RAF War Service Dress Trousers - Size 16

Code: 11263


An original pair of RAF War Service Dress Trousers dating from the Second World War and in good condition.

This pattern of trousers replaced the earlier 'Suits, Aircrew' which came into issue in late 1940 and was the standard working dress for all members of the RAF until 1947 when the 'New Pattern' uniforms was introduced.

The trousers are made from wool serge and feature one rear buttoning pocket, a slash pocket to each hip and a first field dress pocket to the front left of the trousers. They also feature a button fly and have buttons around the inside of the waistband which are used to secure the braces, all of which are the standard black horn type using on this pattern of RAF clothing.

Inside the trousers retain their original label which is sadly somewhat faded, leaving the information hard to read. The date is present but hard to read as is the sizing and the War Department broad arrow marking. The trousers are a good size and when laid flat measure -

Waist - 17 1/4"
Inside leg - 31"

The condition of the trousers is very good and they display well. There are a couple of very small holes to the legs which are only noticeable on close inspection. Aside from this there is only limited signs of service wear and use.

A nice pair of original WW2 RAF trousers in a good size which would suit a re-enactor or collector well.
