    Original 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers - Size 1

    BLIGHTY MILITARIA


    $170 (approx conversion from £140)

    An original pair of British Army 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers dating from the early 1970s.

    This pattern of trousers came into use with the British Army in the 1960s and were based on the 1952 Pattern uniform issued to British troops serving in Korea. These trousers would have been issued as part of a set which included a matching combat jacket.

    The trousers are made from a plain olive green coloured cotton satten and feature a First Field Dressing pocket to the right hip and a map pocket to the left leg. The trousers also have reinforced knees, slash pockets to the hips and belt loops. A metal zipper closes the fly and is marked NZ' to the front.

    Inside the trousers both original labels are still present. One label is an instruction label whilst the other is the issue label. The label is faded but the size of 1 can be seen as can the A/78 contract number which dates the trousers to the early 1970s. The maker's name of 'James Smith & Co (Derby) Ltd' is present.

    The trousers are a small size which will suit around a 28" waist and when laid flat the trousers measure - 

    Waist - 14 1/2"
    Rise - 14 1/2"
    Rear rise - 18"
    Inside leg - 26 1/2""
    Outside leg - 40"
    Cuff - 8"

    The trousers are in well worn condition with signs of wear and washing. They have clearly been issued but have no serious flaws aside from a small hole to the rear patch pocket as detailed in the pictures. They display well enough and are still very wearable but are of course a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

    A good, wearable pair of this pattern of trousers.
