    About this item

    An original pair of Australian made1950 pattern Drill Green trousers in good condition and clearly dated 1963. 

    This pattern of trousers with the cross belt waist came into issue with British and Commonwealth forces in 1944. It stayed in use well into the 1970s under different designations including '1950 pattern'. The waist belt was designed to be adjustable to account for the wearer losing weight in hot climates. This style is now often referred to as 'Gurkha pants'. 

    The trousers are made from a green coloured cotton drill material and feature a twin pleated front, slash pockets to the hips, twin rear pockets and a map pocket to the left leg. The fly fastens with brown plastic buttons as do the pockets and the waist belts fasten with single prong buckles made from metal.

    Inside the trousers the original label is still present and is still legible. The maker's initials of 'C. G. C. F' are present as is the 1963 date and Australian War Department broad arrow markings. The size is stated as No. 17 and when laid flat the trousers measure - 

    Waist - 18 1/2"
    Rise - 17"
    Rear rise - 19 1/2"
    Inside leg - 29 1/2"
    Outside leg - 42 1/2"
    Cuff - 10 1/4"

    The trousers are in reasonable condition with some signs of serious wear or use. There are general signs of wear and washing along with some staining. Both cuffs are worn at the rear and there are a couple of small holes to the front which are visible in the pictures. Please take time to study the pictures and remember that these are a pre-owned, vintage pair of trousers which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

    A good pair of this hard to find pattern of trousers, complete with the original label.
