    I suspect the A/78/CLO format may have been introduced after the Defence (Transfer of Functions) Act 1964 when "A" signified Army. I notice after that time publications that formerly used a WO Registry File number assumed an "A" prefix as well. Prior to this what was the typical contract prefix?

    I think "GS" is General Stores as I notice the Army Cataloguing Authority combined responsibilities for Clothing & General Stores at Didcot, so one can see the CLO/GS is closely related.

    Contract A/78/CLO//48022/CB(CT)2B (Haversack, Respirator, NBC Mk 2A, 8485-99-137-1438) Dated 1976

    'pretty sure I've posted this one somewhere before but can't find it. I've had a Gortex-esque reversible cover for a few years now (with foliage straps on the DPM side) and recently I bought one without straps. Until receipt I hoped that I'd found yet another variant but, on closer ispection, it's possible to make out where stitching had once been....although this new one (without elastic) has been used.

    Did anyone here get the “Snipers Helmet Cover” from EBay yesterday?....it was for a scrimmed Cover and a smock + other bits...(£200 though) - the cover had a formal label but I’m not yet convinced it was an Issue item. I’ve not seen one before....I’m assuming it was a 6/6A cover but that’s guess work....it could’ve been made for a 7........
