Webbing at War Vol. 1


23 September 2022

If you’ve enjoyed Ed’s accoutrements series then here’s your chance to catch up with 1937 Pattern webbing set that was both a staple of the British Army but also used by other countries around the world. This is Volume 1, so expect subsequent editions to cover other sets.

It’s an A4 format softcover with glossy, colour pages which allows for lots of images of the kit as well as people wearing it. The book covers post war, RAF and RN usage, then on to India, Canada, South Africa, Australia. There are chapters of wearing the set and accessories, making this invaluable for both collectors and re-enactors.
