Recommended Posts

An example of 58 nylon.

Anyone know if there was a 58 belt made.

I assume that there was but I have never seen one.

Thank You.

Yes the water bottle pouch is a civvy type that I put together with the set.

That pic from the trials is very good to see, thank you.

I will look out for another poncho roll.

No not ebay this set. I have had this for a while. The poncho roll was the last bit to come.

Just looking for a belt and water bottle pouch.

Thanks.

My trial nylon 58 belt was found at Du Bora's in Aldershot a couple of years ago now........

 

The rest of the items were sourced from Silverman's in London at (for them) a very reasonable £15 per item......all used except for the yoke which is new..........seems they bought up most of the trial stock and still have this available now......look on their website, use the drop-down menu on each item, and it is still there.......this gear is genuine and far rarer than the earlier "72 pattern".........

 

Appreciate your eyes kept open for a second poncho roll !!! Silverman's have none of these, nor packs or waterbottle pouches, but do have the yokes, kidney pouches, ammo pouches and (apparently) belts too.......

Thank you for the info.

Silvermans are about to have a clear out of their warehouse soon.

I will check with them regarding the MK2 58.

Cheers.

Very nice. I'm after the almost non-existent water bottle pouch (two versions...) and the near-mythical pack. Silvermans still have the kidney pouches, ammo pouches and yokes, but make sure you're sitting down before you look at the prices...:nut:

Will NOT be paying Silvermans prices any day soon thats for sure.

 

Probably wont complete the set ever and not actively looking due to its rarity BUT of course if I come accross any bits at a sensible price then would be rude not to.

Was there a trials nylon gas mask pouch?

Not that I'm aware of. By then the NBC friendly butyl S6 respirator haversack was in use, so presumably there was no need.

 

There was a new respirator haversack with the 1985 trials PLCE set though. Almost the same as the later issue one, but had different rear fittings.

Thankfully I got my bits from them just before they whacked their prices up. Likewise I wouldn't pay what they're asking now.

 

Bits turn up on eBay now and again. That's how I got my poncho carrier.

I won a 72 pattern pack in a job lot of pouches from eBay. The 6 pouches cost less than £30!
