    Not really part of the shown webbing sets, but actually from after it.
    The KLu version of the M93 harness vest.

    So far I've only ever seen the vest, backpack and the magazine pouch shown in the last photo here, though it's pretty much destroyed.
    I've no idea if other parts like the Rotota, canteen pouch, gasmaskbag, small utility pouch or shovel pouch actually exist.

    Got some more KLu stuff again since they were cheap AF and I might make a 60's loadout sometime.

    First I happened upon a British P37 type water bottle carrier as on page 1, probably dated 1948, since the last number irl looks
    like either a 6 or an 8, but seeing as there's the M47 webbing name, this could be part of it so I'm considering it an 8.
    And then a nicely stamped 1952 dated shoulder brace and a modified Uzi pouch, now having belt hooks.





    Then today I got another shoulder brace, also stamped very well (will make a detailpic later), an M52 canteenpouch and an M52
    belt, which I already had, but well, for €1 I couldn't leave it.



    The rest of the stuff is unrelated to the KLu.
    Also, if anyone knows what the Y-strap is, please enlighten me, as I don't recognize this type at all and I can't find any markings yet.

    O did I maybe forget to notify you that it has arrived? If so, thanks for dealing with me, didsn't know it was you here, small world!

    And right now I have it set up as a hybrid of M47 and M52 parts.

    I have M47 basic pouches and the water bottle carrier, and then 2 braces which should be the same for M47 and M52.
    To fill it up I have the M52 belt shown above, and a leather M52 shovel carrier.
    Sadly I have no idea how the actual M47 belt looks, if there was even an M47 shovel/e-tool carrier, and if there was an M47 bayonet frog, so I don't really know how to complete a true M47 set.
    And then there's the gasmaskbag, don't know if it was official, but I think the correct type before the K-52 was the British Lightweight gasmask and bag, but again, unconfirmed

    Got a wirecutter pouch today, and also took pics to show how the webbin hanging right now.








    K-mask bag is just a spacefiller, I actually have ideas for it on another loadout.

    Thanks! Same for me, so I had to get it. Makes me wonder what other pouches exist that we don't know of yet

    And today I found a Dutch made wirecutter of the US WW2 type.

    When I first saw it it almost looked Danish going by the color of the pouch, the weird mustardy hue, except it's actually marked MvO,
    and is actually marked quite early for this type.

    The grey frog is most likely British, but I'll hang it with the KLu webbing since British stuff was reissued for ages here anyway.

    Got some M1 Carbine pouches today, along with a sweater. And then a K-maskbag for a friend, and it has a strange striped fabric, unlike my own flat grey one.
