    Thanks René! That's a great looking set!

    It looks like your set has metal buttons, are they marked Defence Department? I have seen similar wool anklets with plastic buttons, I wonder if those are later production...
    Cheers Mate I'd say later prod also going by the V445 code, I know the buttons you are talking about which I normally see on trousers, these are plain

    Those are great anklets René! I did some quick research on the maker PR, do you think it might be Pioneer Rubber Proprietary Limited?

    Here is clipping from 1948...

    Thanks René! I hope I got it right, maybe we can add it to the short list of Aussie webbing makers I started a while back...

    I thought these might be of interest to some. I drew these from stores at my RNR unit this week for guard training. Very odd to see dates in the 1990s, used to seeing 1940s stamps!

    Wow, that is late!! I wonder if the firm that made it was a descendant of one of the wartime webbing manufacturers?

    Thanks for the photos Warspite!

    Thanks for posting the pictures Roberto! You have a very nice pair of late production Indian-made anklets there! Note the web straps without brass tips. Also, I'm surprised to see the leather crescents and I am wondering if these were added later, as they partially obscure the inspection stamps. I think that anklets marked "WEB CO 1945" were made by the same firm that made anklets marked "G.W.CO.LTD. 1944". I believe this firm to be Gwalior Webbing Company, Limited.
