One Piece Russia Duck Pantaloons

Michael Lyons of Garryowen, a Limerick Entrepreneur:

There is little more known about this invention and whether it caught on in Limerick.

Russia Duck Pantaloons were often worn by the military in the early nineteenth century. In 1807 they were part of the standard issue clothing for each Sergeant, Corporal, Drummer and Private Man in the British Army. They were issued annually with: A coat, a waistcoat, a pair of blue cloth pantaloons and a pair of half boots. Every two years they would receive a cap.
