Use for australian white ww2 pants

Article about: also there appears to be only 3 loops for a belt and they are in very strange places not the normal even all round . Part of the reason I thought they may have had a specific purpose .

    I doubt ski pants....though going by the cut and the fly, these are probably RAN.....

    Hi Mat,
    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.

    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 .
