Things a soldier would carry other than firearms, ammo, or uniforms. Meaning equipment such as ammo pouches, bayonets, holsters, oil cans, cleaning equipment, etc.

Brit field gear

Postby oneshooter » Sat Oct 24, 2009 8:22 pm

I have a fairly complete set of British field gear, WW@ issue. What I need is a set of the brass? clips that connect the pack onto the load bearing gear,aka suspenders. Anybody know of a source of these?

Hi Oneshooter,

A slight problem here, as i have a slightly different keyboard configuration, is WW@ WW1 or 2?

If WW2 (1937 pattern webbing), Are you thinking of the 'L' straps that fit to the pack and attach it to the brace attachments - which can be either seperate items or part of the pouches? (do you have the 2" buckles?) or are you looking for the attachments for pack straps to belt (the 'brace attachments'?).

If WW1 are you simply looking for the 2" buckes to attach the pack to the cross straps or the straps themselves?

If you can post a couple of pictures showing what you have and indicating what's missing, I may be able to help.

Regards

Tom

The items I am looking for are the brass clips to attach the pack to the LBG on Pattern 37 equipment. I will need 3 set if possable.
Sorry for the confusion, in a hurry and not a typest!!

Hello
I understand this topic is old, but if you are still needing the 2" buckles for the Pattern-1937 Pack, here they are for $2 (U.S.).
