    Arktis DPM, Pouch?

    Post by Tommo on Mon Jan 02, 2012 5:58 pm

    I picked this up on eBay a while back and have been meaning to Photograph it as its been stuck in '58 Pattern for Months. Anyway, I'm not sure what pouch it is, however I assume its 1980's by the type of Material, the 'Arktis' Label and the print of DPM which matches the '68 Pattern Print.

    I don't know what its for however I keep my First Aid kit in and used to use it in Cadets as I was my Detachment First Aid Instructor, I saw a load of these at a shop a while back, they weren't Arktis however they were the same pouch but in different shades of DPM. If you have any, post pics up!!!

    It's defo notebook cover, I've had the same one for years which I bought from some place in aldershot, the zip compartment at the back is just another pocketed section for putting extra items in ie a protractor or siva compass or as sobota mentioned TAMS or maybe crib cards, many different companies make them.
