    About this item

    An original pair of original 1950 pattern Drill Green trousers in good condition which date from the 1970s.

    This pattern of trousers with the cross belt waist came into issue with British 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 green plastic buttons as do the rear pockets and the waist belts fasten with single prong buckles made from metal.

    Inside the trousers the original label is still present but has been washed out leaving no details legible. When laid flat the trousers measure - 

    Waist - 15"
    Rise - 15"
    Rear rise - 16 1/2"
    Inside leg - 29 1/2"
    Outside leg - 42"
    Cuff - 9"

    The trousers are in reasonably good condition with signs of wear or use. All the buttons are present as are the metal waist buckles. There is general wear and staining including a small hole to the top of the right leg which is reflected in the price. Please take time to study the pictures and remember that these are a pre-owned, vintage pair of trousers which have issues commensurate with age. 

    A reasonable pair of this hard to find pattern of trousers in wearable condition.
