  2. To my knowledge that is not a 58 pattern bit of kit.

    That is either 44 or the stuff sold by survival aids in the 80's as SAS webbing, I did have some then!
  4. It looks like a modded 58 pattern water bottle container. But escape/survival kit should not be in your webbing anyway.
  5. Looks like 44 pattern to me and as DD says, survival stuff belongs on your person; not in your webbing!
  6. Silvermans sold it in the 80's. I understood it was a limited issue item.

    I had some and also modded a single kidney pouch to carry first aid kit as the patrol scab lifter. Easy to make pouches fit a web belt.
  8. im sure silvermans sell them
  9. ~Never saw one of those. We (North Germany recce/covert) had 24 hours in pockets and 24 hours in belt kit but the 24 was all biccies and glucose.
