    Time for more strange stuff!

    But first a simple beret of a guards unit rom the 80's.

    And a Welsh guards beret badge, also an older type.

    And then the strange stuff. A trials P58 webbing made out of nylon. Also known as 1958 pattern mk2. Sadly some parts are missing.

    Time for some new bits of gear again.

    First an SAS droploop AR15 magazinepouch.

    Some recent British finds, and some questions, Part 2! - Page 7 Dsc02715


    Then a very late type Combat Body Armour Mk2, I call it the 3rd type as it seems to be the 3rd major variation.

    2 Warrior fastmag pouches, sadly missing the attachment strips but I'll fabricate something.

    Then a pair of GS combat gloves, this time the late type without knucklepad.
    And another SAS droploop pouch, the escape and evasion pouch.

    Very true, which is why I've delayed this project for a very long time, only now I start to find some parts of it. I also have the knifepouch on the way right now

    Some more British kit again, including 1 very weird lot, which I'll post first.

    USMC Scalable Plate Carrier which has allegedly been used by a British guy.
    Just the British flagpatch, Warrior radiopouch and the brighter green single opentop magpouch are British, the rest is not.
    The guy has added a lot of stuff to the vest though, Shitty padding around the shoulders Condor sideplatepouches with unknown brand
    steel sideplates, a number of Condor magpouches, a tourniquet within a shoulderstrap, a Blackhawk sling which has been made 1-point
    with an S-karabiner, a black strap that can be pulled out of the MOLLE straps that can then be used as 2 draghandles instead of just the
    handle integrated on the vest, and some comms wires have been internally routed through the vest's cover, entering at the left shoulder
    and exiting at the left side just above the radiopouch, a small mic is located at the top corner of the flagpatch, and a push-to-talk button
    hangs at the center of the chest.

    It also came with both US ESAPI plates and Eagle's plasticized manual.

    Then some oldgen Warrior magpouches (The TT grenadepouch is of course not British). I didn't know that the singles and doubles were
    different in terms of removable flaps on the double pouch.

    Yeah I'm very(!!) happy with that vest, already with the integrated softarmor intact and the hard plates with it, but also the personal touches. There were no other bidders and I doubt anyone else actually saw what it was.With the photos the seller used it looked more like some airsoft-thing

    PLCE85 utility pouch and round flap LH magazine pouch. So happy with these, now I'll need the shovelpouch and gasmaskbag to make it at least a "complete"webbing.
    Markings are sadly unreadable on the photos, in real life they look a bit better.

    More Virtus stuff, and more is on the way still.
    First a battlebelt with Y-yoke, it's the first type before the Rev. B type came, and a UGL pouch, and a random utilitypouch that came with it, no idea if it's even British, but it's for sure commercial.

    Then some DDPM Lightweight combat FR trousers, apparently for heli pilots but have seen limited use with infantry by those that could acquire them in whatever way.

    Anther Virtus part, the Source 3L Rider hydration pack, and an MTP winterhat, and a, Arktis Dutch DPM notepad cover with Dutch unit embroided.

    Then another older Arktis vest, this Dutch DPM one looks more to the actual M171 cut than the previously posted Woodland one, though that one is earlier and they might have
    changed the cut inbetween generations, either that or the Woodland one is actually another model I don't know.
    This one also came with some small Dutch stuff in the pockets and a small knife.

    Checking in after a break, and congratulations on the trials PLCE pouches. The utility pouch is IMO the hardest bit of all to find. I am sure the date will be 1985 and the maker will be CQC, which is the Chelsea Quilt Company. The trials e-tool pouches come up on ebay fairly regularly. There's a seller called double-ugly who had a large batch of them; he doesn't have any listed at present but it might be worth messaging him in case he has any left.

    This is my set. It took quite some time to find all the pieces in this condition.

    Wow, that set is mint! That's a feat considering almost all parts seem almost impossible to find, at least from a Dutch guy's point of view. I never expected to even find the yoke or belt within a number
    of years, but I can't imagine how difficult it'd have to be to find all the parts in that condition.
    And thanks, I was very happy to find out it was actually a utility pouch like I hoped, instead of a second water bottle pouch. I have seen the shovelpouches offered by him before but I couldn't remember
    the seller's name for the life of me, so I guess I'll shoot him a message.

    And here's some more new stuff I got.

    Virtus instruction manual (didn't expect this to have almost 200 pages!!!), Osprey Mk4 armor manual, Mk7 helmet comfort pads manual.

    Virtus MTP utility pouch that apparently has the QR-buckle upside down compared to any other I've seen, Virtus MTP medical pouch, Virtus DWD.

    And here's a few examples of the vest being used. They're meant for aquatic use, both with boarding teams and with divers.

    Neat vest! Very much like the ISPL, which makes sense since it is UK made.

    Thanks, same here. It's quite a nice system with the interchangable panels. MOLLE must have been ruled out as the snaps would corrode quite fast with the vests being meant for aquatic use, and would come in contact with salt water a lot.
    There are no exposed metal parts on the vest and most of the pouches, the snaps on some are actually completely plastic, only the zipper on the black watertight pouch is partly metal.
    I also have a panel on the way to bolt a holster on, as seen in some of the reference photos, then it'll be quite nicely filled up already
