Trousers, Kersey Lined, Plain Type, M-1941, Arctic / Tanker
Scarce genuine WWII US M-1941 khaki cotton trousers, lined with kersey/wool and featuring knit cuffs at the ankles. Size 32.
First intended to be worn with the 'Arctic' M-1941 jacket, these pants are also known as 'Tanker Pants' by some collectors. Mostly issued to Army units deployed in the Aleutian Islands, such as the 87th Infantry Regiment, they were also worn by troops fighting in the ETO -- particularly in the Ardennes and in Italy, where the name 'tanker pants' was apparently common amongst GIs of the 34th Infantry Division.
The QM tag is still visible on the right front pocket.
NOS, never worn.
