    Nice lot Rene,
    I've got a couple of really rough ones, but here is my best one.
    UK made , P08 marked ME Co , dated 1911
    Note the strap modifications to suit P37 gear.
    You can see the marks where the original 2" chapes and buckles have been removed.
    marked CMF WA and D&D .
    Cheers Rick

    These used to be in boxes by the dozen when I was a lad haunting the disposal stores, nobody wanted them cause nobody knew what to do with them.....

    .. then along came Rene!!!

    Problem solved ...

    Good idea Rene. Dragged mine out. I dont have a WWI entrenching tool cover but there seems to be a JG one here. Three of the five heads are WWI (McKay, Chillington and Meadowbank) and two of the helves are also WWI.
