I am looking for a brass kit bag clip (or a matching pair) to repair a WW1 pouch.

The brass clip I have to match is about half the size of a normal kit bag clip but the same shape etc.

I have looked at Sterling SMG sling buckles but they are the wrong shape and to modern.

Anybody on arrse have an idea were I may be able to get one/two or even better a brass kit bag clip lying around they do not want and prepared to sell.

If only I knew DB. ;)
You will find them in a good maritime chandelry, so pop down your local yacht club, but they aint cheap
DB, they appear to be called swivel eye snap hooks.

Are they in short supply? If you have a picture and dimensions I might be able to help.

I will try a chandry for them, I have been around a few saddlery looking in the old scrap bins etc with no joy.

Has anybody got a parott (standing type, left shoulder, other ranks) to go with the matching eye patch and woodern leg!!!

Cheers EX-STAB the ones you have advised are spot on and I am awaiting instructions.

I would have hoped 'The Sports and Pastimes Regt RLC' might have had a few to spare. (They still owe me a few favours from Port Stanley 82/83. I spent a fortune in the RAZZ INN).

I was in there a while back, its an Alladins cave, serveral hours well spent.

Great shop for old equipment etc.
I was allowed to venture into the cellar there once. 4 foot deep in high cavalry boots of all types and other such junk even they couldn't sell. Awesome.
