    Default Pair of British KD shorts... Do they look good?

    Hello,

    I think I'll start building my WW2 Crete British soldier as all I need is a nice pair of KD shorts and a nice drill tunic...
    So, I found this pair online and I would love your expertise since it is not my field...

    What do you guys think?

    Thank you very much!

    it's a late war pattern, usually dated 1945, not really a piece of uniform that would have been worn in 1941.

    Loupie1961 is bang on. The date letter (L) on the acceptance stamp dates them to 1945.

    As already posted, L is for 1945 so not suitable for a 1941 display. There is a good coverage of the types and changes to KD shorts in Martin Brayley's book Khaki Drill and Jungle Green

    So, if I get this correctly I'm looking for something like C... With a single pocket at the back and with date letters of Q or P... Right?

    C would probably be best but A & B would also be fine.
