I have a few pairs of these in different sizes. Excellent nick as bought for hillwalking but we are not able to do at moment as one of us not up to it :(

If anyone is interested I can do measurements/leg length.

Happy for seeds plus wee contribution to postage/this site :)

    ok. Here's the measurements as the army seems to have codes as opposed to sizing tabs

    Pair a/ CAMO Pattern 17.5 measured across waistband and 33 inside leg

    Pair B/ Green with elasticated bottom of hems. 30 inch waist and 30 inside leg

    Pair c/ Camo 30 inch waist and 30.5 inside leg

    pair d/ Green. 32 inch waist and 32 and a quarter length

    pair e/ 31 inch waist and inside leg 32 inch

    I also have a brand new pair of long ladies shorts 35 inch waist 19.5 inside leg. Bought for walking but got wrong size. They are M&S surplus :p

    I don't think that they will be big enough for us . Too small for Tone and too big for me.
    Thanks for offering them though.

    If only you had a pair of ladies size 6... ;D
    I've got a pair of these which belonged to my son as an army cadet (don't ask), they are wonderful for gardening in this weather. Funny looks when I shop in the village in them, though.

    You should get a Glengarry to finish off your outfit...that would gain a look or two :)

    They are fab for that Mr Smith. My husband wanted me to post that they were good for role play in the boudoir. Since I have not used them for that application, I will have to watch him closely :)

    For future reference, the labels inside trousers will read, for example 80/96/112. That would be the leg length, waist size, and seat size, all in cms. This is standard labelling for any services trousers inside NATO.
    Why plant rows of 24 lettuces??
