    Default Are these ww2 usmc M1941 HBT trousers??

    Hello, these trousers doesn´t look like the regular usms M41 trousers that I´ve seen before. Usually the rear pockets are not as rounded at the bottom for example. They have a watch pocket in front, are they an early model (first pattern) M1941´s?

    Hi, I would give them a very cautious thumbs up. However, it is over 20 years since I owned or handled a pair of these trousers and my memory on them is now a bit fuzzy.

    Cheers, Ade.

    These appear to be the M47 set, as the waistband appears to be a separate piece of material and the legs are tapered plus the pockets are rounded (WW2 can also be rounded but the ones I've seen are in the early paler colour).

    I´ve tried searching on the internet and also found that these could be M47 trousers, found no pictures though on the M47´s, I really should buy a usmc collectors book. Thanks Ade and René!
