Who, what, & when are these webbing bits from, please?

#1
Hello,
This is my first post on Arrse, so please forgive my Pignorance and be gentle with me- I'm just a civvy who caught a kit-fetish as a cadet!:blush:

Can anyone provide any further info on these three items (who used 'em, for what, and when?):

1) map case(?(HALO/HAHO?)) made by Irvin (parachute manufacturer) marked:
"D.L. No. IAC-C15715 Issue A
NSN. 5820-99-5735075
Date of Manuf. -6 Apr 1999"

2) Flare kit bag. markings as per photo.

3) 58'patt bandolier thingy (Artillery/ demo's?), marked (hard to read-numbers might be misread):
"Belt Primer
1025-419-1961-6887
AME 1987 4
?10/78494?234"

Any help would be appreciated,:?
cheers,
Jim.

top one prob does what it says. HAHO/HALO is a form of high alt parachuting. HAHO is a bit like paragliding... outof a plane. SO a map fixed to your arm/front etc somewhere visible during flight/fall is probabably valuable.

L87A1 is a fuse to my knowledge, so prob contained fuzes for illumination shells.

The bandolier contains the primers, little cartridges that set off the main bag charge in a gun (ie 105, 155mm calibre).

I believe its the document pouch from a RT346 carrying bag.

The RT346 is a UHF Ground to Air radio issued from '99 or so.

The OP was speculating as to it being for HAHO/HALO, as it wasn't included in his description marked with quotations:

1) map case(?(HALO/HAHO?)) made by Irvin (parachute manufacturer) marked:


"D.L. No. IAC-C15715 Issue A
NSN. 5820-99-5735075

And because it looks to be 14cm long and wide you'd have a job attaching it to an arm or a leg in such a way that it would both stay on at 120+mph (velcro and button poppers???) and then be readable under canopy.

Thanks to everyone for the info:thumright:

Jungelism, you are spot-on, it was just a geuss based on Irvin- it is actually 36x28cm, so I had my doubts but i've only ever parascended and don't know jack, so thanks again.

Oh, Well I didn't know what it was so was speculating from the description. :D
