I seem to remember there was a "Tankers" holster. Webbing with a longer than normal strap from the belt.  Ron

Yeah, there was a long drop holster (2 versions) for the RAC. The Enfield No. 2 Mk1* was due to a change in doctrine rather than for tank crews. The name Tankie may have erroneously been due to reports from armoured crews that the hammer spur was catching on objects within the vehicle, and therefore a desire for a spur less hammer version.
