    Royal Canadian Navy & Pattern 1919 Webbing

    Post by Wgrenadier on Tue Jan 20, 2015 7:20 pm

    Hey Guys,

    Recently, I have come across some photographs showing RCN personnel wearing Pattern 1919 Naval webbing. Most of them seem to date around late 1941 and depict questioning of Japanese Canadians on the Pacific coast...

    A Japanese-Canadian fisherman is questioned in 1941.

    Note the first pattern holster with the wood plug and the brace attachment holding the belt together.

    An R.C.N. officer questions Japanese-Canadian fisherman while confiscating their boat. Dec. 9, 1941

    Note the second pattern holster

    R.C.N. officer questioning and confiscating a Japanese-Canadian fishing boat off the British Columbia coast, December 9, 1941.


    RCN Rating - N.D.

    Thanks Ypres! So cool to see the full set!

    It seems like they used just the belt, holster and ammo pouch more frequently though... hmmm
