    Sitting in a box for over 30 years..


    IIRC, it came with some other pouches and the usual backpack; those other pieces were used.

    This webbing was still comparatively hard to get in Canada, as I recall, in the mid-1980s.

    Strangely enough, the webbing was part of a large package of South African and Rhodesian Camo uniforms that was mailed to me from South Africa.

    Now THAT is interesting, considering that the UK was supposed to have an embargo on Rhodesia if I am not mistaken. Lovely set! I regret not getting one of my own when they were common; you always take these things for granted...
