    Until when the P1944 pattern equipment was used? Was it used paralel with the P1937 system until the P1958 came to use (early 60's? or later?). I always liked to collect a P1944 equipment, but impossible to find here in Hungary. Odd enough, a few months ago a contact of mine brought me the aluminium cargo frame (with all the straps), but nothing else.

    Hey guys it started as webbing for the invasion of Japan etc but as the yanks bombed them to the stone age so it was used it the minor Asian wars Borneo Malaya etc it was used in our army up till the 70s when we went all yank 56 webbing with some Aussie bits. The last pack is a 60s 44 pack used by a Vietnam vet.

    BTW cool SMG pouch i would say it was 58 though.

    Does anybody have any info of the P1944 packboard (seen also in onward288's post)? I didn't find anything on the net, while an example arrived to me, but with much more straps than on onward288's picture. I wonder how this packboard should be packed? Appreciated any help!

    Not sure how they came issued from new but i know you can add or remove straps yourself to suit what ever you need to be carrying at the time.

    I have one also and from memory(stored away) mine only has a few straps as well.

    44 pattern Empty Odd P44 webbing

    Post by britcoll36 Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:38 pm

    I have never encountered a P44 water bottle carrier that has the "C" clips on the rear. Is this a specific item for Fiji? What is the date and manufacturer of this item?
    Also the manpack carrier is usually missing the headband that fits on the top that was designed to put some of the weight on the neck rather than the shoulders. Some of the frames were updated in the 80's and 90's with the nylon padded straps from the GS and SAS/Para bergen frames and used for carrying mortar components.

    The 4 cell SMG pouch is an Australian M56 pattern used for the 32 rd magazines for the F-1 submachine gun. It is missing the sliding belt keepers.

    Likewise. I wonder if they are still being issued in Fiji ...? If they come up for AASAM 2012 I'll have to have a closer look ...
