    Found in surplus

    Hi everyone. I found this quite a few months ago, put it away safely, and forgot about it till this morning when I was doing some after Christmas cleaning up. It appears to be a concealable shoulder harness for an automatic pistol. On one side you have the holster and on the other side is the carrier for spare mags. I have looked all over it and there are no marking anywhere on it. I believe it is Canadian because it uses the same material used on pouches on the '82 pattern webbing and the buckles appear similar. Anyone seen one of these before?

    There were also copies of this style holster available in the markets at Kandahar airfield and in some shops on the boardwalk.

    We tankers had them issued to the Armoured Observer types that flew with the Kiowa's , and were continued to be issued until they were taken out of service. I have one down stairs right next to my green leather version.
