    Dave, alot of the webbing is 58 pattern, I use to use it when i was in the military, it got phased out in the early nineties, the booklets are NBC papar and one of the belts and the water bottle look like American

    The respirator is a WW2 British home front example. Be careful of these Dave, as the the filter is asbestos. Mix up a solution of PVA glue and pour this into the filter to seal it.

    The puttees look post war too, as do the stripes and buttons.

    The field dressing top right might be WW2 British, but only worth a quid.

    I cannot really see what the helmet is, but it does not look WW1 to me.

    Cheers, Ade.
