USAAF A-11 Flight Trousers
A good issued set manufactured by Bobrich Manufacturing Corp, with a 32 waist and a 1944 contract date. Finished in olive drab cotton with full length leg zips, fly zip, zipped side pockets and numerous other pockets. Interestingly the top of the left leg carries stencil detail of the original owner. This is no longer 100% clear but appears to read Simpson G and below 91st F. B. S. which we assume relates to the 91st Fighter Bomber Squadron.
Overall the material is in good condition but with the odd mark and snag associated with an issued item. All of the zips function correctly although the the final 1" of the right side main leg zip zip at the ankle end does not function but is unnoticeable from a display point of view. The alpaca lining is very clean whilst the knitted anklets have minor moth damage. The original leather and fabric braces are fitted. These flight trousers were used in conjunction with with the B-15/B-15A flying jackets and this combination was standardised on the 11th April 1944.
