    I would like to show you some pieces of my Blue Air Force webbing.
    There are belt, pouches, water bottle cover, small and big pack.

    Nice - if you need, I have spare basic pouches and pack support straps in blue.

    Thanks, but other pouches I don't need at the moment. When I need some I contact you.
    Supporting straps I have in one of my boxes and I think in blue too.

    Okay, let me know. I also may have some extra left and right pack straps, but I am not certain. I have support straps from a range of different manufacturers dating from the 1950s.

    Have you found much Belgian webbing with naval markings? (FN/ZM)

    I have a pair of the FN/ZM stamped cartridge carriers somewhere and I think a canteen carrier.

    I have found cartridge carriers (in khaki), and large and small packs in a shade of blue that is notably darker than the air force webbing, but not nearly as dark the the gendarmerie webbing. I wonder if there is some rhyme or reason in the procurement of naval webbing, since some of it is khaki and some is blue.

    And regarding air force webbing, where did the 'front' mates for the 'rear' utility pouches (shown below) all disappear to?

    Same place all the British issue ones must have gone as always plenty of paired pouches for sale but never with the connecting strap.

    I know that they are existing, but I have none in my collection, as I know.

    A Good friend of me explains me the different shades with Air Force webbing: He says in the beginning after the war the BAF used the same blue colour like the RAF. After some time they used a darker Blue/Grey for their webbing.
    And I think they used it all in a mix.
