    I have recently collected the bare minimum of "pack fillers" for my 'Oppakningssystem' M/45-50.
    Here shown together with the M/44 uniform, boots, blanket and helmet:

    Beautiful stuff!
    Is the camouflage net made in Denmark?

    I have no way of knowing.
    It looks a lot like the British(?) nets - but they are often found in mint condition in Denmark.
    They were hardly used for more than neckerchiefs - however, their intended use was this:

    It looks kind of similar to the Belgian net also.

    Yes, they do.
    However, I have a hard time imagining they are sourced from the same place - unless that is British / Commonwealth stocks.
    As there is no exchange of newly produced webbing equipment between Denmark and Belgium in the period (1945-60).
