    Thanks for the pictures! Field equipment from Portugal is rarely seen clearly identified, if at all.

    Are the helmets hard to find in Portugal? How about other older equipment?

    From time to time I find helmets and M64 combat gear (the one used in the Ultramar War), its becoming rarer and more expensive as time passes. When I was a child almost every adult male had lots of uniforms and combat gear at home but most was destroyed since it was hard used in construction, hunting and fishing.

    Next Saturday I'm going in a trip just to find some rarer items.

    I am not surprised items are getting hard to find. Here in the US it is the same story, though of course the size of our military means there is a lot of stuff still available. Many items probably were used for hunting, construction, etc.

    I am surprised to see snaps for the closures of the magazine pouches. Most nations, it seems, were using similar methods like the 2nd Model. Snaps generally suck Wink

    My M64 straps canteen carrier with canteen, usually issued to troops carrying more than one canteen since it was cheaper to produce and the men only needed one canteen cup:

    Here you can see the most common orders for the M64 webbing.

    1) Complete M64 (rarely used):
    - 1 combat belt
    - 1 H-harness
    - 1 double grenade pouch
    - 1 canteen and carrier
    - 2 double magazine pouches
    - 1 large pack
    - 1 haversack
    Portuguese gear colection DSCF2373_zps511d6f7e

    You can see the strange method of mounting the haversack at the front since the magazine pouches were mostly used in the kidneys, the large pack was mounted at the back and the canteen and grenade pouch at the sides.


    2. Usual orders
    - 1 combat belt
    - 1 H-harness
    - 1 double grenade pouch
    - 1 canteen and carrier
    - 2 double magazine pouches
    - 1 large pack or 1 haversack

    My Portuguese M/964 OTAN Steel Helmet, I only have the steel pot but I'm trying to find the plastic helmet that goes inside. This was an almost copy of the French M51 OTAN Steel Helmet. It wasn't deployed to Africa in large numbers because since it was NATO materiel it could not be used in the war.
