    This thread that I posted sometime ago may help - http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/equipm...ebbing-113677/

    Unfortunately I deleted the pictures of my webbing by accident. In a nutshell black webbing was used by the RAC and Canadians (amongst others) during the war, however, it was used a lot post war by cadets

    When I was in the cadets in early 1980s we had black gaiters for a time. I don't remember exactly now, but I would imagine that they were 40s or 50s vintage. Apart from the pullovers and DP camo stuff most off what we used was wartime vintage - rifles, webbing, even radios, I think.
