Bergens - Help the American

Recommended Posts

Gents,

 

I'm looking to obtain a couple period-correct bergens for my ex-Basra Land Rover Snatch to hold various kit inside the vehicle when it's on show and in use.

 

Seems like there is a myriad of types, ECM, radio, etc. Is there a "GS" bergan that would have been used during this operation or in Iraq, in general?

 

As always, thanks!

 

Ron

To be honest, we used anything and everything. We had jet packs, bergans, 58 webbing etc. Anything that was of use. We had phos grenades at the back door and it was the job of the last man out in a disabling attack to put 2 rounds through the ECM and then pull the pin on the phos to burn the vehicle out.
