RAF Air Sea Rescue Waterproof Over Trousers

RAF ASR Over Trousers with Belt.

These over trousers could be quickly pulled over the service dress trousers and footwear, during bad weather, keeping the wearer dry.

Made from a yellow 'rubberised' cotton with brass zips and a webbing belt.
The stitched trouser seams are covered with a rubberised cotton tape.

The trousers feature all of their original brass 'Swift' zips - one for the fly and another to the back of each leg, so allowing free movement of the footwear when pulling on.
The three zips are working.
The foot area is fully enclosed for both legs, and they have a black rubber sole for grip (these sole's have now gone brittle and have begun to flake off in places).

Inside they are rubber stamped (size) Large, Premier Garments Ltd., 1943, with a War Department Arrow and date letter 'N' for 1943 and Air Ministry marks.

The Belt is also stamped and dated and it retains it's pressed steel buckle.

The overall condition is very good and they look to be unissued.
