    French TTA M47 pants.

    TTA is Tout Troupes Allege.. means all troops, lightened.  In other words lightweight general issue .

    These were worn by everyone other than paras..  And sometimes by paras as well..

    I believe your pants are  the early type  with metal buttons; later type had drawstring.

    I agree this is an early example. Most of the ones out there have plastic buttons. I am totally crap at identifying the different variations and which ones are common/rare, but I have a feeling this is one of the less common variants for the M47 uniform. Hopefully Gilles will drop on by and give a more educated answer to that question.
