My first piece/s of p37 web was a pair of gaiters that I got from my Grandfather when I was about 4 years old. I had no clue what it was used for, or what it was for that matter. I played with them for a while then they were forgotten for around eleven years when they resurfaced while cleaning out my fathers quonset after he passed away. In the meantime I did acquire a few odd bits of webbing here and there from my fathers auction sale buys over the years, but never really knew how it all worked together. The belt was probably the easiest thing to figure out.
Anyways, since then I've been researching p37 webbing when I could, and completed my first basic marching order when I was 17. I wanted to learn all I could even though the CF did not use this kind of webbing anymore. I was planning on signing up for the army out of high school but a serious accident ended those plans for me. So instead, I've been collecting it ever since...along with a lot of other things.
But enough about my boring life, time to get to the good stuff.
I now would like to announce the kick-off of the CMCF P37 Webbing thread!
