WH (Heer) EM/NCO's Breeches for Mounted Troops


Wehrmacht (Heer) EM/NCO's Breeches for Mounted Troops (Stiefelhose für Mannschaften und Unteroffiziere der berittenen Truppen). The German 'Heer' (Army) utilized a wide variety of long trousers and breeches including the breeches for mounted troops. Mounted (cavalry) personnel in all branches of service utilized the riding breeches (Reithose) which were to be worn with most of the uniform types. Originally the seat and crotch of the riding breeches were out-fitted with leather reinforcement panels. This is a pair of stone-grey woolen-construction riding breeches for mounted troops, having leather reinforcement panels. The breeches are most likely tailor made and therefore not visible maker marked or dated. The breeches are showing normal traces of usage, see photos. Nice original pair of breeches in good used condition!
