    Thanks for all the information! Do you still have 1972 and 1976 pattern shirts in the larger sizes?

    I'm still trying to get a complete early tropical DPM and crap hats to match my temperate sets.

    This one was a nice surprise, found it in Lisbon and got it from a fellow collector. This respirator mask was made in the UK in 1942 and sent to Portugal as aid between 1943 and 1944.

    Crap hat here, not a large size but definitely 1970s and looks in very good condition:

    British Pattern 44 webbing compass pouch.

    The compass pouch had felt lining in the interior for better protection against shock. This one is was made in the 50's.

    British Pattern 1958 right ammo pouch.

    Since the Energa grenade and its adapter were long retired from service there was no real need to have its side pocket on the right ammo pouch.

    This simplification apparently was only done very late in the production with samples from 1989 and 1990 at least.

    This one is from 1990.

    British local pattern SLR double magazine pouch.

    I do not know much about this kind of pouch, it appears in a few Malaya and Aden pictures and it is made of a very light canvas.

    It is marked "CN/X/11871" and "LPG 4338". It will hold two SLR magazines.
