Default Bavarian model trousers with special Nicker pocket?

Hallo All,
I have read of a general Bavarian request to the Bekleidungsamt to add a pocket for the Jagdnicker. While I am familiar with this pocket on Trachten hosen, has anyone got specs or images showing it on soldiers? Would it be leather, or wool? Are there copies of the order for this? Vielen Dank!

Photo shows the small triangular pocket on the right hip.

Verdammte! Danke!

Looks like the pocket was added, but the trousers themselves are not the standard. What more can you tell me? Is that a patch pocket, or is there an internal pocket?

Its an internal pocket, very long, at least 20cm.

Grausig13,

The breeches are standard. They are standard Reithosen, not Tuchhosen. Though the inside material of the special pocket was not shown, the material of the flap on the outside seems to indicate that the pocket was an add-on.

Thanks, Chip. I heard they were being added in the field, but that a request was put in to have them added when they were manufactured, I gather.
