    Welcome to the forum Karkee. I'm afraid that I cant be much help but I am impressed by your research. Can I ask which city/state you are in?

    Cheers,

    Hi Oz,

    Thanks for taking the time to look at my post! I'm actually from Gainesville, Florida (I should have included that in the account information) and I've always been fascinated by Australian-made webbing. You guys had to build the industry from scratch once the war started and design equipment that could survive and function in the jungles if New Guinea!

    If you can think of anyone on this forum that might be able to help, please direct them to this thread.

    Thanks for the great photos of the Australian maker marks Rene! I didn't realize how many webbing firms Australia actually had until I started to research the subject!

    G'day Oz,
    To be honest I have no idea other than it being some kind of load carrier
