Old kit?
I have three '58 pattern belts that I can't bear to let go.
Such a good belt, someday I'll find a use for them.
Trouble is, they've 'kin shrunk ! No

Yes like many others I kept the basic kit I needed for my reserve time, usrd it quite a lot when you consider I did basic 9yrs then reserve took it up to over 26yrs, must say I enjoyed my time on the reserve, was treated very well by all concerned, sometimes to the point where it became worrying, also like many I kept my stable belt, when I look at prices now I also wish I had kept my side hat

If you've got any pre- combat kit stuff get round the re-enactment lads, that lot that like playing in BD or Waffen SS gear and collecting de-activated WW2 weaponry of both sides.

Think I've said before that I had a Dennison smock from years back which someone was going to bin. Much more comfortable than a BD top for crawling about in the woods or on the ranges. Got rid of it finally a couple of years ago, the weekend crowd were fighting over an original rather than the fake gear they dress up in.

£ 350 they said it was worth, I let go cheaper to one who I'd taken a shine to, chucked in some bits of '37 pattern webbing and a rifle sling and sent off a contribution to ABF. I still hold on to a couple of '56 pattern ammo pouches.......... very useful and find I can push in a waterproof, a camera, etc into one for a walk in the woods or a tramp in the hills.

I don't remember anyone wearing a cravat in uniform at QRIH but in the UDR women wore them. They were colour coded to each battalion.

Now in civvies it was a different matter Very Happy

Relaxing, getting a tan, eating Mezes and Kebabs and quaffing gallons of Efes and Brand Sours. Laughing Laughing sunny sunny
