Just a quick note on the "zig-zag stitching" seen on the rudder. What you're seeing is not stitching. It's strips of reinforcing fabric (seam tape) doped (glued) over the underlying stitched seams....

Hi Tomasz,
Thanks for your reply. Per family lore, this was supposedly a wartime-worn piece. No photos to prove it, unfortunately. It's certainly seen some wear and tear.

Lining material on the legs is different than the lining for the upper part of the trousers. These appear to be a modified pair of standard Canadian battledress trousers, date unknown.
