    This is the first time I've ever actually seen an extant example...

    Nice. Not a true set of P'25 though as the belt appears to be P'37.

    Nice spot, I didn't even notice that! Yes, the belt, holster, ammunition pouch and valise are all specifically Pattern 1937. The braces, brace attachments and waterbottle carrier could be from either set though.

    I rarely read the titles of eBay listings, since the pictures really say it all (assuming there are decent pictures)...
