Man thats cool!

 

I went to a show and the bloke there had nearly a complete set! I stupidly didnt buy it for the price of £2!!!!! as I was looking for 58 and didnt realise what it was. My father just said it was some s**t version of 58 inbetween 58 and 95! Anyone have a link for the Silvermans stuff, as I searched but it seems to gone??

 

BTW isnt it 72 Pattern, not 77???

Although age may play a part, the nylon 58 is rather stiff (ooh er missus :-D).......it's not the same fabric as the butyl-nylon 72 gear (I will post shots of the latter at some point...).....the pouches being a similar fabric to the early green PLCE stuff......it IS damn rare however, made in limited numbers circa 1977 for troop trials, the idea being that it was more water-resistant and more NBC-friendly to decontaminate than the cotton issue version..........I'd say it's actually scarcer than the 72 sets.......??

 

Silverman's appear to have bought the stock of remaining trials gear many moons ago......they have a pallet or two full of the stuff, apparently....£15 per item......:-D
