    Excellent material - and nice period photos. Are the photos dated?

    Thank you. They are not dated, but I think they are from end of the 1960s, maybe until middle of the 1970s.

    This photos here are only photocopies. I get them from a good friend.

    It is interesting to see how the olive uniform is used along with the British-type webbing and the early moons and balls shelter half. The FAL bayonet also appears to be the early type.

    Also, it is curious that the man carries no waterbottle. Perhaps it is stored inside the small pack?

    I have the same thoughts with the water bottle, that it was carried inside the small pack.

    Very nice! The pictures showing the carrying of equipment are very interesting to see. Someone with access to 1950-1970s pictures of the Belgian military could probably make money off a photo book.
