    About this item

    An original pair of white cotton British Royal Navy shorts dating from the 1940s. 

    This pattern of shorts was worn by the Royal Navy during the 1940s and the 1950s. They are made from a white coloured cotton drill material and are cut in a typical manner for the time featuring a high rise waist. The fly fastens with buttons and the waist fastens with a double buckle and strap design which was first seen on the British Army 1941 pattern Khaki Drill shorts. There is single patch pocket to the rear, as is usually found on this pattern.  

    Inside the shorts retain there are no markings but they will suit around a 32" waist and when laid flat they measure - 

    Waist - 16 1/2"
    Rise - 14"
    Rear rise - 17 1/2"
    Inside leg - 7 1/2"
    Outside leg - 
    Cuff - 12 1/2"

    Overall, the shorts are in good condition and are totally wearable. There is some light staining and signs of age etc, but on the whole they display well. Please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that they are a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

    A nice, wearable pair of mid-century shorts.
