    Default Are thses KD long shorts Australian or British?

    Hello all,

    Recently arrived KD long shorts dated 1941. I have been attempting to discover country of origin, I have narrowed them down to Australia or the UK. Any help with ID'ing the various marks will be much appreciated.

    Best regards,
    Chris

    The question is are they long short trousers or short long trousers...???

    I think these will display better with a KD tropical shirt, but they do look ok with the KD tunic for now.

    Yes an aertex or KD shirt would be cool. Original, WWII, Brit trop stuff is hard to find at least here in the U.S. I used to wear my originals around in summertime as they were baggy and wonderful. Mine were Australian ( a green tinged khaki dated 43) that I found at my local surplus store.
