WW1 BRITISH 1908 PATTERN WEBBING EQUIPMENT CARTRIDGE POUCHES

£295.00

Description

The start of my listings of 1908 pat. webbing and 1914 pat. leather equipment.

A good condition pair, of ‘08 pattern webbing field used cartridge pouches.

All fittings are present and in working order, with the exception of the right pouch belt securing straps (popper studs should be treated with respect and care & one belt securing tab is missing its brass finishing tab).

Pouches have been period  blancoed, in varying colours with much of it worn off. They would benefit from a gentle cleaning and re-blancoing to bring to a colour match. One reverse strap has a faint maker and date marking

Left pouch is the later pattern with securing straps.

A nice pair of items (with some wear/repairs, see images) on which a set of equipment could be based/built.

I would say they have been period ‘Salvage Corps’ reissued.

Becoming harder to find. (Priced for condition).
