RARE original First Pattern WW2 Denison Smock as issued to paratroopers and glider pilots.

 

Excellent and genuine example of a rare first pattern Denison Paratrooper's Smock, worn by airborne troops and glider pilots on D-Day, Arnhem etc. Smock is in unissued condition, very large size 7. Couple of small holes in the Angola wool lining of the collar, and the knitted cuffs have been removed. These could be replaced if desired. The cotton body is superb and appears unworn. There is some staining to the front which might be blood or possibly brown paint from when it was painted (early Denisons were "painted" with dye in a random pattern using mops). Lovely example.

RARE SAS / Airborne Windproof Trousers, unissued condition, dated 1943.

 

Extremely rare and highly sought after item of clothing issued to British Special Air Service, Airborne troops and SOE agents. This pair in unissued condition dated 1943. Complete with drawstring waist-tie. Size 1, so quite small (which may explain their incredible condition) but still perfect for any WWII Special Forces display. Impossible to upgrade.
