    They appear to be one of the versions of KD that was overdyed for use in the jungle prior to the introduction of green manufactured clothing. They look to have a field dressing pocket, button down belt loops and double strap waist adjustment all of which are seen on British & commonwealth trousers and the later types made inn green cloth are introduced circa 1944 I think so these should date to shortly before then, 1943 perhaps.

    Hi Matty,

    there seems to be a number of versions of KD, not all of which match the known standard patterns, in fact I have a 45 dated pair of KD shorts which do not match, but they are WD arrow marked. These could be Indian made as you suggest.
    Regards,

    Jerry
