British Pattern-1937 Officers Pistol Order Webbing.

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

British Pattern-1937 Officers Pistol Order Webbing.

Postby TomcatPC » Tue Apr 19, 2011 8:56 pm

Hello
Here is an incomplete set of British Pattern-1937 Webbing that is set up for pistol order. I'm missing the Officers Haversack. The revolver is a U.S. made S&W M&P "Victory Model" .380" calibre (aka commercially .38 S&W) Revolver.
Thanks
Mark

Hello
There was a Haversack that was made for Officers that was part of the Pattern-1937 Web Equipment. It is the last one listed on the page.

That looks like a good reference website for "British and Empire Accoutrements" of the 20th Century. I'll add it to the links page.

We had a Major who always had a haversack with him, needed it to carry his whisky, water, tea, powdered milk and a small stove (tea for brewing on) - nothing else! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Our Colonel had an official batman in Korea and even we lowly Signallers etc had 'Houseboys' who did our washing and polished our boots etc.,- - - - for a price. Not much, only about 25 cents a wash.
The lad who looked after most of battalion HQ was very enterprising; one of the Sgts who had a shotgun was looking along the local creek for a duck or a phesant and came across about twenty oldwomen from the local village all washing uniforms and his nibs sorting out the washed and dried clothes.
He was a major employer of local labour.

Probably went on to become a millionaire in the post war boom. :bigsmile:

Many batmen distinguished themselves as personal bodyguards to their Officers.
