    Australian WW2 mid-late war web set

    Hi thought I would post my Australian manufactured web set, this is a mid to late war type as worn in the Pacific, all components are made in 1943 except the e-tool carrier and the canteen carrier which are dated 1944 and 1945, note the style of canteen carrier and the blanket roll straps which are uniquely Australian.


    Details of the canteen carrier, note the hooks on the back so the canteen could also be carried attached to the belt...
    FRONT

    BACK


    The bed roll straps, basically just a set of 08 valise straps with an extra buckle added which attaches to the braces so the bed roll can be carried, which is usually half a blanket and mosquito net inside a ground sheet

    Thanks mate I love the Aussie 43 version of the patt 37 webbing, Im still trying to find a decent pair of the large basic pouches though, they seem to have all but dried up these days
