    58 Pattern Webbing,variations,REPRO,Foreign???

    Post by Gulf91 on Fri May 04, 2012 7:13 am

    Over the past 20 or so years i have amassed a large amount of 58 Patt webbing,probably 10-15 full sets and various bits and pieces as sometimes you have to buy a load just to get the 1 odd pouch or item.

    I gather that quite a few foreign countries used it and have some strange Pea Green bits-some British Maker marked but most unmarked and was hoping they could possibly be Iraqi and also have a set of what conforms to the early style and colours but just dont seem right due to construction etc so is there or is/was there ever REPRO 58 Patt around(cant imagine why as its so plentiful)

    Would be great to have a thread on 58 Patt as while pretty much unloved its an important part of British Army load carrying equipment.

    Dave,you are most certainly right Sad Sad

    Its a case unfortunately of buying a set to get a single item,then another and another and on and on and on!!!!!

    I hear you mate but sell the surplus on .... you probably have enough to outfit a small African republic ! Laughing

    Mind you , the worst case of OCD I ever came across was in Canada. A friend of a friend collected Lee Enfield bayonest of WW2. He had EVERY maker and for every maker, a bayonet for each year of manufacture ..... a whole room full of three or so different types of bayonet....... each type being industinguishable from its' brothers !! Shocked

    Could always make another remake of Wild Geese Laughing Laughing Laughing

    To be honest these days 58 Patt isnt worth much as the postage probably works out more than the value of the stuff itself Sad
