    British desert SHORTS

    While I was posting these elsewhere, I thought I would go ahead and post them here as well...These were part of a grouping I bought off of a fellow who served in the ROYAL MARINES and was in Iraq during the early part of the war...The grouping consisted of the trousers, jacket, these shorts & his green beret.

    Interesting...I thought combat shorts went out with WWII.

    I learned something new today!

    many blokes in the 'ghan tend to wear these shorts in camp- there are many photos of them wearing it during mortar firing, artillery, or simply just lazing about
