    Hello Tonton,

    These are M65s, the successors to the M56s. They have a wooly removable liner, and are rugged and durable field trousers.

    Mistake me if Im wrong but the first pair are M1951 trs and the liner in the 2nd pair is also from the M1951 type-M1965 liners were of a quilted rip stop material??

    You are correct about the M51s.

    I believe the wooly liner is an earlier correct  liner for the M65 series of field clothing.

    Pretty certain that wooly liners for M65 Field jackets , M65 Parkas , and M 65 field trousers were used before the quilted lining was available.

    Im no authority on anything but was always(possibly wrong) led to believe that the quilted liners for both jkts and trs were part of the new M1965 system of layering system etc but that is not to say that the earlier heavier M1951 liners were used with the M1965s.

    Yes, the M51 liners were meant for the M51 system and the quilted ones for the M65. However, both were issued. A friend was given both types of field jacket liners and quilted pants liners. This was in 67-68. He always prefured the wool ones. I will have to look, but I think I still have a vet aquired M65 with M51 liner in it. It definately is warmer in my opinion. I'll also dig around and pull out a pair of modified M43 trousers with side pockets and a pair of M43 trousers that are all original. I had several pairs of un-modified ones that came from a Korean War vet. I've also got M43, M49, and M50 field jackets as well as an early M65 without shoulder straps also. Fun stuff!

    Fins...
