    Hi AIF I'm chasing the ww2 version as I'm part the 1st (C.Q) Light Horse Regiment Rockhampton Historical Troop & Museum because I’m trying to get most of my WW2 desert Armoured uniform and equipment ready for Biloela in July 15-17. PS could you please post up some photos of it please?
    Thanks Anthony Egretz

    Heres another Item that was also popular, the old toiletries sets, this particular one was given away to soldiers who enlisted in Caulfield NSW as a gift. Its never been used and still has the original soap in it.

    Hi an Aif thanks for the photo’s there great and full of information. I read the P37 book and it says that the KFS (knife, fork and spoon) were not in holdall they in a separate bag and put in the small pack so did they also put them in the holdall to.

    No worries mate, I will take some better photos of each individual item and explain what each Item is, I havent seen the p37 book you are refering to, but yes the was roll was designed to carry your KFS. I dont really think that the Aussies used the washrolls much after they came back from Nth Africa as they only carried what they really needed in the Pacific theatre, ie. ammo smokes a groundsheet and food
