    Default WWII GI Gaiters?

    I got these and I think they're WWII GI issue gators because they say are dated 1942 and I've had a pair in the past that were given to me by the vet himself!
    Also I got some other gators that are similar to British or German one I've seen before. Lastly is a strap marked '7.62' and some Chinese characters after that. Possibly AK47 or SKS strap? Thanks for any info given.\

    Yep US WW2 gaiters and are the typical 42 period colour
    The second pair are British, unless they are dated it's difficult to tell if they 40-60's
    I can't help on the strap, maybe a Chinese ammo box strap?
    Regards

    Yeah, I cant complain! I always loved your avatar picture! 1984 was a great movie and an even better book in the like of other prophetical stories such as 'Brave new world'. It is sad to think we are at that point in time.

    Ha you are the first to ever comment on my avatar. I haven't seen "Brave New World" I'll have to chase that one up but I've seen and read 1984, nowa days 1984 does remind me of our world today.

    Because they say "1965" on them ;-) but who knows, maybe they just made them the same after WWII.
