    Hi Ryan, in the Meat Can pouch goes the mess tin, knife, fork and spoon.

    In the pack proper goes the blanket, tent half, poles and pegs: spare clothing/underwear, washing kit. But to carry all of this you would need the Pack Carrier or tail.

    The pack is really a lousy design. I don't have the field manual any longer.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with Ade, it's a terrible thing to have to use. I am speaking from reenacting experience.

    They were good for situations like D-Day, where everyone had to go into combat carrying what they would need later, but after that it was pretty much useless.

    Hi Ryan, I could teach you how to use it if I had it in hand. But explaning it over the net is not easy. Basically the load is rolled up and the pack done up around it.

    Cheers, Ade.
