Looking for some answers to a couple of questions if possible please.. My other half who is a whizz on the sewing machine is really confident that she can make me some channel trousers and a B2 life jacket but I have a couple of questions..
Were the channel trousers made from plain cotton or Gabardine?, should they be made from heavy or lightweight material and would they have been Navy Blue in colour or is Royal Blue /Grey permissible as well??
Now to the B2 life jacket.. Would they be made from canvas or a rubberised cloth? and would they have been bright yellow or a beige/buff colour??..

Mark might be able to help you out there. He's go the stuff.
Gaberdine was normally for officer uniforms.
