    Goodevening eveyone.Few days ago I received my 2 ww2 made british webbing cross straps and I thought to share it with you.The male strap is dated[?] 1943 ,i can't clearly see the date 'cause the stamp has faded a little.The female strap is earlier ,dated 1941. I think that they are authentic . What do you think?? Thanks for your timeClick image for larger version.

    Hi Woodpecker.

    They look good to me mate - nice early/mid-war set in good condition. One question though, does the webbing feel "stiff and thick"?

    Bagcraft is a known manufacturer of 37ptn W/E.

    Sizewise, I would say that, because they are not marked to the contrary, they are a "regular".

    All the best and continued good hunting.

    Regards etc

    I would agree with Ian, they are fine.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The stuff was meant to last under the most brutal of conditions-when new (that is unused) the material is stiff-repro stuff is much more pliable and wont wear anything like as well.
