Scarce 1937 Dated RAF Physical Training Shorts (2)
A scarce original pair of navy blue RAF PT shorts with 1937 contract number.
This pattern of shorts was very commonly seen as part of the physical training uniform of the British Forces during the Second World War. They are made from a navy blue cotton, feature an elasticated waist and a white label to the interior.
This particular pair are RAF issue examples and feature a very early 1937 contract date to the label. The Air Ministry AM and crown marking is present as is the size of 2 which will fit up to a 36" waist. The original owner has added an extra label which bears his serial number which may offer the potential for further research.
The waist is elasticated meaning they will fit a number of waist sizes from 28-38".
The condition of the shorts is good as can be seen in the photographs. They have a few small signs of age but overall display well.
Altogether a good pair of original WW2 period PT shorts with a very rare early date.
