Wool trousers type M-1943, size 34 x 34
Wool trousers type M-1943 with gasflap, size 34 x 34. These are actually wool trousers of the M-1943 uniform, not to be mistaken for the common early war mustard color wool trousers or the late war dark wool trousers to match the Ike jacket. These trousers were introduced in June 1943. They are similar to the cotton M-43 pants but made of wool. They can be indentified by the label but also by the large brown buttons, the buttons for the suspenders on the inside, the wider belt loops and the tabs at the leg ends. All features on the cotton M-43 trousers. They are presented in the Quartermaster catalog as Trousers, Field, Wool OD, 22 oz with Stock No. 55-T-34730-30 (30 x 30 being the smallest size) to 55-T-34744-32 (44 x 32 being the largest size). The trousers are well worn and stainedd with the manufacturer's label completely washed out. It has a CS 34 stamp on the waistband which probably stands for 'Combat Serviceable' and the size. Also there is a named and AS stamped on the lining of a pocket but is is very faint and hard to read. One button at the fly is broken and the buttons for the tabs at the leg ends are gone. Still these trousers would make a good addition to a collection as they are hard to find, and missing from most collections. Good condition.
