Germany: WW2 EXTREMELY RARE LUFTWAFFE SUMMER WEIGHT CHANNEL PANTS FOR MEDITERRANEAN USE. Manufactured from the same 'salt and pepper' pattern material as the one-piece suits that were made famous in the 'Battle of Britain'. These pants are particularly difficult to obtain and rarely seen on the market. This example shows heavy wear and some staining )possibly from oil). They have a genuine 'combat worn' appearance and shows several tears, period field repairs and modifications. All zippers are present and in operational condition. External pocket for a flare gun. Originally the pants may have had another external pocket to each leg, possibly removed by the wearer, as was often done, to prevent them being caught up on the aircraft when bailing out etc. It is unlikely that we will see another pair for sale any time soon.
