    Default Webbing & Royal Navy Landing Parties

    Presented below are 33 period photos of Royal Navy sailors and officers wearing Patterns 1908 and 1919 between 1920 and 1942. They have been collected from various sources over the years and are quite hard to find. I hope they will be of some interest to members of this forum!

    Below is another interesting shot of the Royal Navy Coast Watch wearing 08 webbing with BD and caps. I'd love to put this one together for reenacting!

    Hi Ed,

    Great pictures, thank you so much for sharing them! Any Idea of the date or location of the first picture?

    I notice both pictures show the navy Lewis Gun. Some of these were stripped down and given vertical foregrips early in the Second World War.

    I'm afraid no date or location, but. HMS Ceres spent most of the interwar years in the Mediterranean as part of the 3rd light cruiser squadron with the my guess it was taken somewhere like Malta or one of the Greek islands

    Thanks for letting know Ed!

    By the way, I like the asbestos on the Lewis gun slings in your your first picture. Talk about about lung cancer...

    Hi all

    Great photo's, love these sort of pic's, they show the "reality" as opposed to the "book".

    As regards the one's posted by Ed, I make models in my spare time and I can just imagine the comments along the lines of "oh no, that didnt happen" etc if I was to do a model based on the last photo of the Naval Coast Watch group. Naval headdress, 08ptn W/E, BD with Naval pattern anklets, SMLE's and Lewis Guns.......Brain cells are ticking on this one!

    Regards etc
