    I am currently putting together a WW2 Canadian Brigadiers Battledress and while looking at a militaria site I noticed they had a set of BD Trousers listed as officers. I've never heard of them. Is there such a thing and if so what makes them different?

    As I am a new member I cannot post links but if you look up The Collectors Guild and scroll to the bottom of the page under the "uniforms and headdress" in "Canadian 1939-45" youll find them

    Something's not right. The description includes the left and right front pockets but they aren't in the pictures. I expect by 'officer's pattern' they mean a regular pair of trousers that has had the pockets removed. This was quite common for dress uniforms and, perhaps, officers from time to time.

    If you bought the ones in the pics then I'd say you have a regular pair of issue battledress trousers with the pockets removed for dress. They would be completely acceptable for an officer's grouping but I bet colour match may be a problem.

    The trousers pictured are not "Officer's Pattern". As BAP said, they are BD trousers with the pockets removed. Probably after the war.
