Field service trousers for privates and non-commissioned officers. Used by cavalry, including regiments of lancers (Ułan & Szwoleżerów), horse riflemen and horse artillery.
After the 1939 Defense War, the breeches were captured by the Germans and sent to France where they were probably used by prisoners of war, inside is a visible stamp from Angers and French buttons.
Pants belong to the most rare element of the “September” uniform of a Polish soldier. Due to their usefulness after the war, they were worn on farms and in the field until the very end of their usefulness, hence they are unique on the collector’s and museum market.
