    Please feel free to discuss, or post any picture of, British or Commanonwealth Web Equipment of the Two World Wars.
    I'll start this thread off with some British made Web Equipment Pattern 1937.
    All the components of this set are mid war dated.

    This set is also British made with mid war dates.
    This set is for an Officer minus the Binocular case.
    Note these Braces (Shoulder straps) are of the 3 piece construction unlike the single piece woven construction shown above.

    A close up of the Pistol Holster, which is shown suspended from the Pistol Ammo pouch.
    It could also be attached directly to the belt.
    On the opposite side is the Compass pouch.

    An Australian Basic pouch set.
    Note the particular Australian method of Brace manufacture. Also note the multicolors used in manufacture, even within components.
