    All good stuff, buy it while you can at those kind of prices.

    For many years mint British stuff used to be common here, now it is just drying up and prices have soared.

    Cheers, Ade.

    G'day Ade

    Also the Canadian gear was very common here as it was issue to us in quantity, more so than Aussie made gear (mostly made from 43 and of inferior quality), that's why I took these, I could have taken more but enough is enough as I've got ammo boxes full of Aussie & Canadian 37 web. I did discover a pile of British universal pouches some 5 years ago and had to take the lot.
    Bottom line is it is drying up totally

    I am short a British 37 belt, have you a decent one spare?

    Hi Ren, no sorry I haven't got a spare. I only have two or three myself. One is the late war type with web slidders as opposed to brass. Again wartime dated ones are geting harder to find. But I will keep an eye out for one for you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Well this is what I meant by ammo boxes! I don't have that many belts I think about 4 or 5
    I only have a frog in 08 and two sack loads of Aussie'15 leather water bottle carriers these were a gap filler as the canvas ones were in short supply at that time
