    Battledress-type trousers

    Post by Brigade Piron on Sun Jun 12, 2011 4:47 am

    Hello,

    I'm looking for a pair of trousers like the ones below. I would prefer 42" waist but I don't mind too much about size/condition.




    (The label can also say modele 1951)

    Thanks!

The label is definately french and the pants look like postwar canadian My guess is canada exported these to france where theese labels where put on......... SO Do i win the prize??? Smile

    Yep, A = Armée Luxembourgeoise! Though Tyer, most people do usually think they're French Very Happy.

    I'm despirate to find the trousers, the jackets are really common on ebay (£10-20) but the trousers never Evil or Very Mad, well I did see some (unusually labeled 'italian'!) on ebay, but left it a few seconds and, bang, someone else got it!

    Still, congratulations Edward! cheers
