In my search for US Army WWII HBT trousers, which took me 3 years, I finally found two. However this one has me baffled. I looked at the threads and my reference books, but no luck. What threw me off was the patch pockets...I have never seen them on WWII hbts before. Any info would be appreciated.

At first I thought the same thing, but these trousers have the watch pocket and the 2 hip pockets are cut differently than the USMC ones. These look just like the Blue Denim work uniforms that the Army issued prior to the HBT. I haven't seen plastic buttons on the USMC and USN hbt trousers either.
