    Thank you, that did help. I was searching under the wrong operators.

    Im still in the dark, however, as to the standard equipment of a 60s or 70s infantry, and how the equipment was worn. 90% of the images Google produces are for the period imediately following WWII - Im interesred in later periods.

    The few relevant images all seem to be shot from strange or oblique angles that do not adequately show the soldiers equipment.

    If this were WWII German, i could just glance at a nice lithograph that would show me the proper name and location for all the items in a soldiers kit ... but this is Cold War, so no such luck.
