what I already have.
First the uniform bits, the later type tropical uniform sometimes referred to as the pixie suit. Does anyone know if these have a model and year number?
The shirt is dated 1971, and the pants from the 80's.
I also have the older crossover type pants which came with a loose factory tag. I sold one of these pants later on.
Then the webbing equipment. Not sure again what model/year number these are, I just call them Australian M56, though I
have no idea when this stuff was first made or issued.
First there's 2 magazine pouches, 1 of which has the top strap but no buckle and clip on it, the other has no strap at all,
and I can't even see traces where it would have been anymore.
Then there's the bandage pouch, belt, and a short rope.
Does anyone have a good photo of the missing hardware from my strap, so I can see if I have replacements?
Here's the buttpack and H-suspenders, the only visible markings are the broad arrows on some buckles.
Same with the belt.
Then 2 canteens.
And the last I have already are some Vulseal boots.
I also have a bandoleer and bayonet frog on the way, so the only parts I think I need are the bayonet and a boonie hat, and then maybe I'd
like to add a camo raincoat sometime.
If anyone knows where I can get an original hat, I would appreciate a hint.
And I could also add a pack, I've seen old P37 type large packs worn with this webbing, the L-straps' buckle hooks not being attached to anything,
just worn as regular packs.
I do already have this large pack, and could just add some supportstraps and L-straps to finish it.
