Royal Navy Anklets
Lately I bought similar high Anklets / gaiters from 1942. I thought that they are little known Anklets for Motorcycle Dispatch Rider (I prepare now a display of motorcyclist for War relics forum). Thanks to your posts I know now, that this is a pattern for Royal Navy.
In the Polish magazine „Gazety Wojenne” („War Newspapers”) nr 36 I found equipment of british soldier / sailor from 1942, and there are also shown these high Anklets.
