    Again very nice set Rene! ... Just a thought I wonder If V44 was Dunlop's code? As the only pre 1942 dated maker marked ones I have seen are made by Dunlop.

    Cheers Luke I figured to whack it up on a separate thread
    You might be on a winner there by Dunlop being V44, the pair are both V44 and the odds are on it hey?

    Yeah mate the odds are there for sure!!

    I have these old Aussie army issued black waterproof boot covers packed away here somewhere, they look like they go over an AB boot they have the early WW2 Dunlop label in them... Never been able to work out who was issued them but have always thought they were possibly DR related.
    Will see if I can dig them out

    Here you go mate... I have probably had them collecting dust for the last 15 to 20 years and have no Idea what they are really other than they are waterproof boot covers obviously designed to cover the tongue and laces of a boot.
    They could possibly be early post war also, I'm not sure.

    For reference the last picture is of a tag inside another pair of Aussie WW2 DR waterproof trousers.

    Can you take some close shots of the snap buttons, might be able to date them roughly?

    Very interesting shot of the trousers tag! looks like it's been over stamped with a 1943 date etc..
