Abstract:

The CRAMS survey conducted in 1980 provided basic data on the size and shape of male ARA personnel. The survey was intended to provide information on which to base the size rolls and tariffs for male uniforms. To assist in the design of size rolls for uniform items, the measurements of 21341 men have been assembled in a computer data bank. From the results of the questionnaire relating to the male uniform, it was indicated that the general style of the trousers defined by Australian Army Specification AS 5363 was acceptable to members of the Army. It was therefore decided to develop a size roll for dress trousers based on the style parameters of the current mens woolpolyester trouser, AS 5363.
