Trousers A10 USAAF

Article about: G'Day All Here's a mint pair that came my way last night. I guess these are pretty common. Love the woolen lining as this is also found in 41 jackets.

    OUTSTANDING!!!!
    I just talked(Saturday) with my Friend and the only living survivor of the B17 "Mrs Geezil" that was shot down on the April 13th 1944 Schweinfurt mission. I have gotten the service A Uniform and I am starting to collect the Flight gear these Gent's wore. I asked him, What he wore while flying?. Was it the leather or the Cotton/Silk bomber flight gear? He told me he wore his service A uniform under a pair of coverall's( His words"Like the Mechanic's wore") and then he would put a set of the silk one's with the fuzzy lining on. I am in search of these now so I really like what you have!!! I need to find more info on what exactly they wore to be period correct. I'm not sure about A10.A11??????. So I need some help there.
    Thanks For sharing

    Thanks Rene, Those size 40's look great, I could fit in those. I seem to find that the gents back then were really Boy's(18,19,20 years old) and like me then, had thin waist line's,(30-36) But now in my later years, those 40's would be just a LITTLE on the big side. Thanks for the info Rene. Once again your help is always appreciated!!!
