Genuine British Army Ww2 Pattern 'trousers, Parachutist's' For Sale

Genuine British Army Ww2 Pattern 'trousers, Parachutist's'

I HAVE MADE THE HARD DECISION TO SELL MY ENORMOUS COLLECTION OF WW1 AND WW2BRITISH AND ALLIED MILITARIA(PRIMARILY BRITISH) TOFUND A RETURN TO MY FIRST LOVE - CLASSIC BRITISH MOTORCYCLES.. I WILL BE LISTING ITEMS STEADILY OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, THERE ISN'T MUCHI DON'T HAVE AT LEAST ONE EXAMPLE OF SO IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GET IN TOUCH AND I WILL LIST IT FOR YOU..

OFFERED HERE IS A PAIR OF100% GUARANTEED GENUINE BRITISH ARMY 'TROUSERS, PARACHUTIST'S'.. THE TROUSERS ARE IN WELL SERVICE WORN CONDITION BUT HAVE NO DAMAGE OR MOTHING..

THETROUSERS ARE MANUFACTURED IN THE CORRECT KHAKI WOOL SERGE AND THE PATTERN WAS LOOSELY BASED ON 1940 'AUSTERITY' PATTERN, HAVING NO BELT LOOPS, ANKLE STRAPS AND HAVING THE EXTRA KHAKI WOOL ANGOLA SHIRTING MATERIAL LINING IN THE BACK FOR ADDED WARMTH AT THE LOWER BACK. THIS PAIR HAS SEEN MUCH HONEST SERVICE WEAR AND THE NAP OF THE SERGE IS LARGELY WORN AWAY. THE CLASSIC CHAMOIS LEATHER LINED BELLOWS LEG POCKET IS PRESENT WITH IT'S CENTRAL BUTTON AND BOTH SMALL 'NEWEY' MARKED PRESS STUDS (POPPERS) ARE PRESENT AND WORKING. TO THE REAR ARE TWO LARGE, PLEATED SHELL DRESSING POCKETS, BOTH WITH ORIGINAL BUTTONS. TO THE RIGHT OUTER THIGH, BELOW THE HIP POCKET IS THE CORRECT KNIFE POCKET FOR THE SYKES-FAIRBURN FIGHTING KNIFE, COMPLETE WITH BUTTON AND SMALL PRESS STUD (POPPER) CLOSURE. THE LABEL TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE WAISTBAND IS ALMOST LAUNDERED OUT, LITTLE IS READABLE BUT IT IS POSSIBLE TOMAKE OUTTHE '9' AND THE '4' OF A DATE, i.e. '_94_ AND AN UNREADABLEMAKER'S NAME WHICH IS '____ &____ LTD.'

I BELIEVE THESE TROUSERS TO BE JUST POST-WW2 (OF COURSE I MAY BE WRONG AND THEY MAY BE WW2, IN WHICH CASE YOU'LL GET A BARGAIN !) I BASE THIS ON A FEW POINTS, THE LABEL IS OF THE WIDER TYPE USED FROM 1945 ONWARDS, THE LININGOF THE WAISTBAND IS IN GREEN COTTON DENIM AS USED FOR THE DENIM BATTLEDRESS AND SUMMER AFV CREWOVERALLS. THE BELLOWS LEG POCKET IS LINED WITH CHAMOIS LEATHER BUT THE HIP POCKET LININGS ARE OF GREEN DENIM, NOT CHAMOIS. IT IS A PITY THE TROUSERS ARE NOT LESS WORN AND THE LABELIN BETTER CONDITION WITH A COMPLETE, CLEAR DATE BUTI BELIEVE THE DATE OF THESE TROUSERS TO BE 1946 AS LATER PATTERNS HAD CANVAS LINED BELLOWS POCKETS. WEAR IS EVEN OVERALL AND THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF RESTITCHING OR CONVERSION FROM ANOTHER PATTERN, THESE TROUSERS WERE DEFINITELY MADE AS 'TROUSERS, 'PARACHUTIST'S' AND AS FAR AS I'M AWARE THERE ARE NO REPRODUCTIONS USING GREEN COTTON DENIM FOR A LINING, IN ANY CASE THE TROUSERS SHOW TOO MUCH HONEST WEAR FOR REPRODUCTIONS AND ANYBODY ATTEMPTING TO FAKE WW2 PARA TROUSERS WOULD UNDOUBTEDLY HAVE USED KHAKI DRILL FOR THE LINING !..

THE TROUSERS ARE 100% GENUINE BRITISH ARMY 'TROUSERS, PARACHUTIST'S' BUT I BELIEVE THEY ARE JUST POST-WAR IN DATE,CONDITION IS WELL WORN BUTTHIS IS HONEST, LONG TERM SERVICE WEAR WHICH IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FAKE. DESPITE THIS WEAR THE TROUSERS REMAIN STRONG AND THE STITCHING IS GOOD - THE TROUSERS LOOK EXCELLENT IN DISPLAY AND ARE INDISTINGUISHABLE FROM WW2 DATED EXAMPLES WHICH COST £2000+ EVEN IF YOU CAN FIND A PAIR FOR SALE (WHICH IS UNLIKELY BUT ADMITTEDLY NOT IMPOSSIBLE !..) WW2 DATED EXAMPLES OF THESE TROUSERS ARE ONE OF THE FEW THINGS I NEVER MANAGED TO OBTAIN BUT THIS PAIR ARE GREAT STAND-INS FOR WW2 DATEDEXAMPLES (I'VE LOOKED AT MOST OF THE REPROS AVAILABLE BUT THE SERGE IS NEVER CORRECT..) EXCELLENT FORA WW2 BRITISH OR POLISHPARA MANNEQUIN DISPLAY AND AT A FRACTION OF THE PRICE OF A PAIR WITH A WW2 DATE !..

BY THE WAY, THE WHITE LINE VISIBLE ACROSS BOTH OF THE KNEES IN THE FIRST IMAGE IS IN FACT DUST WHICH ACCUMULATED WHERE THE TROUSERS WERE HUNG ON A HANGER IN MY LOFT! - I'M PLEASED TO REPORT THAT THIS HAS NOW BEEN BRUSHED OFF !..

LOW START PRICE ANDA BARGAIN LOW RESERVE (AS USUAL, MUCH LESS THAN I PAID FOR THE TROUSERS, BUT I SUPPOSE MY LOSS IS YOUR GAIN !..)

PLEASEKEEP AN EYE ON MY LISTINGS IN THE NEAR FUTUREFOR MORE WW1 AND WW2 BRITISHUNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT ITEMS...
