    Unusual "British" 58 Pattern Webbing.

    Post by Gulf91 on Fri Jul 15, 2011 7:38 am

    Anyone got any ideas on these 58 Patt bits??

    The pack and poncho roll are a strange pea green/khaki colour.Material is similar to British made but the metalwork is poorer and the strap ends are different.Also have but cannot find at the moment a couple of 1st pattern waterbottle carriers with the twistlock closure in the same colour webbing.

    Other pack is a mix of pea green and green webbing-again metalwork is poor but strap ends are the same as Brit webbing.

    The pea green pack and poncho roll are ink stamped BEEWYSE who i believe were webbing makers during WW2.

    Iraqi,Pakistani??
