I have recently bought this 37 pattern webbing belt, holster and ammo pouch, shown here with my deact revolver. The webbing is khaki but has been blancoed a green color. The green blanco is flaking off, reveling a white undercoating on the ammo pouch and holster. possibly they were blancoed white at some point, then covered in green. My question is whether it is possible to remove the blanco so that the webbing returns to its original khaki. Would soaking the webbing in warm water remove it, or what did British soldiers use to remove it. Thanks for any help offered.
