    they are ww2 british pattern but they were still being made into the 50's.....the date label should be on a tag just inside of one of the cuffs if i remember correctly.... i dont think there were any differences between the war time and post war made suits

    No idea as to authenticity but it did remind me of this excellent photograph from 1945. The caption reads "Two young German soldiers caught attempting to ambush British tanks. Note the bazookas on their bicycles".

    They are real, but as Lee says, the could be 50's.

    It will be a post war Dutch version of the suit. The KL on the label is the give away here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi,
    I'm pretty sure if it has brass poppers, which yours seems to have, it should be WW2. Just like the Dennison smock, if it has nickel poppers then it is 1946 & after. That's the rule that I go by, & I have'nt seen anything to change my mind.
