    Item details

    An original pair of 1963 dated British Army 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers in good condition and a size 9.

    These 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 thigh. The trousers also have reinforced knees, slash pockets to the hips and belt loops. A metal zipper closes the fly and is marked 'FLASH'.

    Inside the trousers both original labels are still present. One label is an instruction label whilst the other is the issue label. The label states the year of manufacture as 1963 and the size as Size 9 - Long Large. The makers name 'Windsmoor Ltd' is present as is the War Department broad arrow marking. 

    When laid flat the trousers measure - 

    Waist - 19"
    Rise - 17"
    Rear rise - 21 1/2"
    Inside leg - 34 1/2"
    Outside leg - 48 1/2"
    Cuff - 8 1/2"

    The condition of the trousers is very good with only small signs of wear and use. They display very well and are still very wearable but are of course a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age. There are a few marks as can be seen in the pictures but overall they have a very fresh appearance with no signs of washing or fading. 

    All in all a very clean pair of combat trousers in a good size and with a nice clear label.
