It could matter if you were OCD.

I refer to my previous post #7. No one told me what a SAS was?

I was referring to his '58 belt he'd found.

"I have a 58 belt here and it would be a much better fit. unfortunately some genius has cut off the rear loops for the yoke. "

So the brass clip idea was obviously fkin useless with the newer belt....

If you look under the velcro there a tbar for the correct placement of pouches…..

58 pattern, OG PLCE 90, then DPM, then MTP. We tended to use chest rigs in NI, and I generally used an ops vest in Iraq.
Got out before Virtus. I have been told that it is not that good.

Informative - never seen green with the T bars.

That was a later issue batch.

You can tell by the weird webbing loops. The first batches had metal d rings iirc for utility pouches and angled webbing loops as per original phot.

Do you not remember from the time you served prior to discharge?

Not sure where to post so please direct me.

I would like some help with finding the correct people I need to contact about my discharge from Army in 2001.

I don't really want to discuss everything on a public forum. Is there a one stop shop you know of where I can go to explain my situation? This is one of a number of things I am trying to sort out myself and to be honest struggling.

I have tried CAB and got nowhere, I cannot afford a solicitor. I would just like to ge to the bottom of my situation so I know there is nothing more that can be done and from there, I can rest.
Or your time in the cadets


Never really thought of asking a storeman direct seeing as I am Civvy, will try Local or web-sites quoted.

Thanks for links and Replys,
