Luftwaffe channel trousers

Code: S25423

SOLD

Trousers from the two-piece 'Kanal' (Channel) flying suit for flight over water during winter.  These have a buttoned waistband with  a concealed webbing belt with friction buckles, fly zip, zipped ankle openings and webbing straps/rings for the attachment of braces/suspenders.  They are fitted with numerous pockets that were used to contain survival equipment including a flare pistol (Kampfpistole), flares, signal flag (Fahnenstace), flight instruments, rations, gravity knife etc.  This pair is manufactured in two-tone grey suede sheepskin with a cotton waistband and pockets.  The suede is generally in very good clean condition bar a few very small holes and a very small circular patch at one ankle.  All of the pockets remain in place and aside from some darning on the right thigh pocket flap, are in good condition.  All Czecholslovakian made 'WIKO' zips are original and in working order though lubrication would aid smooth running.  Each one retains an original leather puller tag.  Aside from a small bare patch as shown in the photographs, the lining appears to be very good.  With cotton hanger loop.  Label absent.  Lovely trousers that display very well.
