World War Two British army issue Drab camouflage wind proof blouse and trousers. Near mint unissed condition and exactly matching material. This type of special clothing was used be some special force such as the LRDG (Long Range Desert Group). They are in a very large size as they are designed to be worn over the battle dress. There are no labels to be found and there is no sign of then ever having them. But there is a war department WD stamp with the date letter O which is 1942. I have been told that they were not labelled in case of being captured by the enemy. Very unusual to have no label but a WD acceptance stamp. A good extra large size, fitting 46" chest with lots of room and trousers about 40" waist. 100% original and not a copy.
