    Don't know how I missed this post, what a great pick up! It looks good on the mannequin too, but for gods sake please put the slouch hat on the right way, he is wearing it backwards! lol

    Also I would suggest removing the entrenching tool cover from the webbing and doing away with it and putting the canteen on the right hip where it is supposed to be... Depending how correct you want to be I would also replace the basic pouches for the earlier Canadian 'small' pouches, as the MK3's you are using only saw very limited use with Aussies at the end of the war, although they were used post war right through into Vietnam.

    Also Rene is correct with the identification of the patch, it is just that yours has the 2nd AIF grey backing. I have seen many variations of colour in WW2 artillery patches they can range anywhere from the correct royal blue through to navy, almost black, purple and even lighter shades of blue.

    Cheers Luke.

    thank you luke for you comments.
    I was told that the entrenching tool would not be needed, so will take that off.
    and I will put the canteen on the right hip.
    the pouches are unissued came out of a box load and braces to.
    just thought having that new look, would make it display better.
    than the worn ratty ones I have, I do have other pouches. so will put the smaller ones on.
    thank you for your help mark

    Yeah I'm with you there I only collect mint or very close to mint webbing, it just takes time and patience to track it all down. Also I see what you mean mate, the set on the right are ideally the ones you want to use but they aren't quite a match. If you have a look there is a seller on ebay.au who has mint pairs for sale.

    Here is one of my WE sets, although this is early war British made this is how you need to set it up, although you could also have the small haversack I have on mine worn the left hip and the large pack on the back.

    thanks luke.
    I have often came across one pouch on its own. and that's it.
    the belts are a hard one to come bye. but always find a gas mask bag.
    but I do have a smaller haversack. cheers mark.
