A funny related story - back in the 1980s a local HUGE disposal store was bringing in surplus NATO stuff from Europe and a lot of it was wrapped in WW2 Italian cammo material - just rolls of excess material. I remember buying some to try to sew up a smock myself until I realised being a seamstress was not going to be my chosen vocation ...... I think I binned my attempt!!!
Anyway, just to say strange things happen and we shouldn't be surprised when stuff like this turns up.

When I first joined the Canadian army in 1980, I was issued the 1951 Pattern of Webbing, same as the 37 pattern but in green!!
Not unusual for armies to keep old kit around for use..however using WW2 German equipment is hard to believe
How about some Korean War era UNPIK used SS uniforms ! Surprisingly, with the SS insignia still attached !!! Cheers! Taka
