Whose underwear is this?

Recommended Posts

These came from a trunkload of Army clothing from a guy who served in the late 60's.

 

At first glance they look like the common old US-issue skivvies, but I can only find those with three waist buttons, whereas this set has just two buttons and is adjustable in the back.

 

There's no labels: just his laundry number and embroidered initials "HS"

Something is making me think UK for some reason, maybe check into that to confirm or not.

I'm with Rusty on this. I don't think they are US military.

I'm pretty sure they are Euro, possibly French. The buttons look a lot like ones I have seen on French military clothing in the past. The image below purports to be French Indochina era skivvies from the late 1940s... While not a match, they are very similar.
