    Hi Guys, strictly speaking it is not 1937 pattern. We collectors tend to lump every bit of WW2 webbing as being "37 pattern". This is not part of the 37 pattern equipment set which comprised of a set number of items.

    Non-Patterned Webbing

    This is not an item I recognise? It is similar in general outline to the Signals Sachel, but it is not one of these. I add the link for interests sake only:

    Satchel Signals

    Hi Tom, this is not an Officers haversack. I have one of these.

    Hi Tom, no not Canadian as their webbing has a distinctive yellow tinge to it.

    Cheers, Ade.
