    Portuguese Rangers rucksack.

    This rucksack seems to start being issued in the mid to late 80's, mainly to the Portuguese Rangers (Special Operations).

    The construction is a mix of old and new, a very light nylon fabric was used for the main body, pockets and flap. Leather was used on the reinforcements and some attachment points, some closing straps are made of leather and other are made of webbing and seem to have being M64 parts re-used.

    Another peculiar feature is that the closing flap is not integral to the main body.

    This rucksack lacks integrity, it is simply a kind of very light duffel bag with pockets, attachment points and straps sewed on it. It is very uncomfortable to wear and it is very strange that OGFE made this kind o rucksack when there were very good alternatives on the market.

    Portuguese M/943-44 combat belt

    The regular M/943-44 combat belt was simply a British supplied P37 and later made in Portugal.

    What makes this particular example interesting is the lack of metal rings for the braces at the back.

    This type of belt appears in period pictures from at least the 60's, mainly in use by NCO's.

    Was it widely distributed or just to NCO's, used for combat or just parade? These are still questions which I do not have an answer yet.

    Portuguese Army M64 cavalry bayonet frog.

    This kind of bayonet frog belongs to the M64 webbing pattern and was issued to the cavalry and drivers.

    The bayonet frog is angled at 45º in order to allow a more comfortable driving or seated position with the bayonet scabbard out of the way.
