    About this item

    An original pair of 1964 dated British Army 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers in good condition and a size 3, the rarest size to find today!

    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 'FLASH' to the front and 'Made in England' to the rear.

    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 1964 and the size as Size 3  which is designed to fit a 34" - 37" waist. The maker's name of 'James Smith & Co' is present as is the War Department broad arrow marking. 

    When laid flat the trousers measure - 

    Waist - 18"
    Rise - 14 1/2"
    Rear rise - 17 1/2"
    Inside leg - 28 1/2"
    Outside leg - 41 1/2"
    Cuff - 8"

    The condition of the trousers is good with signs of wear and use. There is some staining and a few period repairs which are illustrated in the pictures. They are a vintage, pre-owned item so please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that they may have small issues commensurate with age.

    All in all a good pair of wearable 1960 pattern combat trousers.
