    My first piece of African militaria, picked up today. Very well-made bit of kit. I'm looking for the backpack to go with it, but the one I was following on eBay sold, and all I can find is South African "military-style" backpacks... anyone have a spare? Laughing

    Ahh, Pattern 70 kit. Tough stuff! Keep poking about and you'll find one of the backpacks. They do show up from time to time on eBay and BidorBuy. You'll also have to get some mag and canteen pouches.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Loads of accessories for P70 to, toggle rope, more mag pouches, small pack, large pack, canteen, groundsheet roll(think that's what it was).

    One thing I always found interesting, and same for the Rhodesians, they carried a gazillion loaded mags for the FNs, instead of carrying a certain number of mags and then bandoleers of ammo on stripper clips to use with a mag loader. You'll note on those p70 kidney pouches as well as most of the other components have mag pouches attached (hold two 20 rounders)

    Thanks guys! The best part was putting it all together. The one pouch isn't actually supposed to attach to the webbing is it? It seems like a kind of shoulder bag? I think it's a binocular pouch or something, not too sure?

    I had noticed that and wondered if these were mag pouches. Thanks for confirming my suspicions Chris!

    Hey Ben,

    The shoulder bag is just an all purpose bag that can be worn on the shoulder or attached to the belt. I don't have mine handy, but I seem to think it also has the snap hooks on the back so it can be attched to D rings on the braces or on a backpack.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Thanks for the info, Mike!

    I've got it attached to D-rings on the suspenders, resting above the kidney pouches for now, just to keep it all together... it makes the ensemble look like a 3-compartment backpack.

    Slowly piecing it together... cheers to Steve for the backpack hookup.

    I'm waiting on the arrival of 2 R1 mag pouches and a bayonet frog and it'll be good to go for the most part. Not sure of the origins of the FAL bayonet, though.
