I have just bought one off ebay for myself, I found there are plenty on there to choose from and plenty of varying sizes. I would say that buying the battledress Blouse is fine but finding battledress trousers is another matter, they seem to be thin on the ground.

The Battledress Blouse I bought arrived today, superb condition. 49 pattern date stamped 1951.

I collect Royal Navy Uniform usually but wanted a battledress that fits me for some choice when we do events.

Trousers, shirt/tie and a beret/sidecap next on the list.

Slick 50, you need a 15, or better, an 18........the latter was the largest standard one made....BD was grouped together in 3 widths per-height, eg: 1 - 3, 4 - 6, etc.......the widths being basically narrow, medium and wide.........see the attached chart for info....
