    Some more small bits, mostly Desert DPM and 1 MTP pouch.

    Osprey triple magazine pouch (3X2) with strange MOLLE strap arrangement on the back, Osprey legpanel, modular PRR pouch and modular PRR pouch with additional holder for a GPS module IIRC.
    The Flecktarn brassard is of course not British.

    And for some reason the rarest British things I find are all from here in Holland.

    I bought this helmet just to get the cover, which officially shouldn't be on this helmet type, though I've seen other people encountering them on turtle helmets too, soldier's ingenuity I guess.
    And judging by the wearpattern it's been used on the helmet for quite a while.
    It's an early type of Mk6 cover with just 2 elastic bands, only seen on early ones, and according to the contractcode it should be from 1982 or 1983.
    The helmet itself was optional for me, I hope to find a really early Mk6 sometime, and then this cover will be put on that, and the liner might go to another of my British helmets which has a broken liner in it.

    No idea what the yellow paint or the number 33 on the shell should signify.

    Still, I might just keep it together as an original used set.

    Now I also have a Desert DPM Osprey Mk3 vest, but this one's with the shoulder, upper arm and neck protection pieces. No inserts though, just covers all around.

    And more Osprey stuff.

    First 2 UGL 40mm pouches, which seem to be part of the same series as the legpanel and triple magpouch, as they also have weird MOLLE arrangement on the back.
    The Desert Buff isn't British, it just arrived on the same day.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06813


    Then a field pack, which is at least used as a gasmask carrier, not sure what other purpose it would have.
    And a set of Osprey assault pouches, much better than the normal pouches of the Osprey vest set, consisting of 4 double magazine pouches, 3 single and 2 grenade pouches.

    Some more stuff from yesterday.

    First mostly Osprey pouches, 1 for a knife/torch, 2 medical pouches of which 1 for beltmounting and the other is modular with an added beltloop, a late type holster,
    a double magpouch and a velcro ranktab.

    Yes it's quite a nice find for a random Dutch dump-store visit. I already have another set I like more though, I just bought this to at least try to get it out of the pile of random UK gear and to a collector that knows what it is and appreciates it.

    Here's my other set, I also have an armor but no good pics of it.

    Another day another package, and a lot of stuff in it.

    This time it's an Osprey Mk4 armor cover with 23 pouches and loads of other accesories.


    First off is the vest itself with the 2 velcro blanking panels.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06860
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06859
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06861


    Then the plate covers, not sure why these exist when the plates are already inside the vest.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06911
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06910


    Then 3 types of collars, mid height, full height and the patrol collar.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06912
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06913


    Then the brassards and the extra pad covering the rear gap.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06915
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06917


    3 Side plate pouches (I was supposed to get just 2) and a front ops panel.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06919
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06918


    A load of various straps, for attaching things like a camelbak and rankslide, and also a 1-point sling.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06916


    Then the pouches, 3 open-top SA80 single magpouches, 3 regular single magpouches, 3 regular double magpouches and a sharpshooter magpouch,
    not sure what that means, it's just a bit bigger than the double magpouches, maybe a triple size? Why not just call it that though.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06865


    Then 2 smoke grenade pouches, 2 frag grenade pouches, 2 pistol magpouches, an admin pouch (which is missing the flap on the small pocket), an LMG
    100rd pouch and a 8rd UGL pouch.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06923
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc06922

    Ugh, Michel at it again with the Warrior stuff, I've even been asked now why I collect it eventhough it's not really that much in use in British forces. Well it's actually part of my Dutch collection,
    since they use pretty much everything Razz
    So here I go again, a WAS forward opening admin pouch, and a green Gen.2 commander's pouch.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc00228
    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 5 Dsc00229


    And today I found this Bristol armor (British made for German use, judging by the plate's labels), including 2 different plates. 1 Covered with foam, and another thinner one that isn't.
