I doubt ski pants....though going by the cut and the fly, these are probably RAN.....
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
I would guess Navy too.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
Navy gets my vote.
Whatever its just an opinion.
that's great I have a ww2 winter uniform so summer whites would be great
I to feel they are RAN.
WW2 Australian ski instruction was only conducted in Lebanon during 1941 as preperation for the Syrian campaign I believe and the trainees wore a pretty much standard white cotton (I think) over suit.
If I find anything concrete I will get back to you mate.
Here's a cool link Hehehehehehe

I saw these on Ebay and thought they were interesting myself, Nice pick-up Mat. Any chance you could post an image of the tag on the WW2 Australian manufactures code thread.
thanks for the info guy's .And Yeh Dave I thought they were interesting as well hence why I grabbed them good price too . When they arrive I'll post some clear pictures to the WW2 Australian manufactures code thread mate the listing one is quiet blurry .
I added an interesting link in my previous thread.
Good viewing I feel.
cheers for the link dave .Very cool vid.Just so barren After watching the link vid I'm positive they are not the same cut as the ski pants.Notice the loops were the belt go's and the height of the loops that is what I find most interesting they are a lot lower then a normal pair of pants that would be at the top generally . crazy how they got snowed in .
