WWII HBT Trouser modification (?)

Recommended Posts

I have a pair of HBT trousers with the pleated side/cargo pockets.


Interestingly, the center pleat on both pockets is sewn flat half-way up.  (no point in a photo since all that you would see is a flat cargo pocket with a pleat).


Has anyone seen this before?  Could it be a soldier"s modification to keep the pockets flat for a neater appearance?. Possibly a contractor variation?


Appreciate any thoughts on this.
