    Wanted: Post war (1950s) items

    Post by Ypres Creepers on Wed May 19, 2010 4:24 am

    Hello, I'm looking for some 1950s era items, personal items headgear and webbing mostly, but feel free to offer me anything

    Items I'm specifically looking for are:
    a C1 Bayonet
    51 Webbing items (Dated mess tin (not carrier)
    Belt
    Cross straps
    Binocular case
    Rucksacks
    E-Tool and Cover
    Or any other 51 webbing pieces you have lying around might just tickle my fancy

    So, I take it you don't want the shovel that you asked me to set aside over a month ago?

    I have extra cross straps if you need them.

    Bloody hell, that's right isn't it, I completely forgot about that, sorry bill!duh Sorry to say but I think I'm going to have to pass on your shovel, I've thought about it and I don't like the lack of markings on it, sorry for any trouble I may have caused you!


    And as for MK, how much are you looking to get for the cross straps, I had actually found a set (and a belt) from a surplus store online but I believe they ripped me off because it's been a good two months and I've seen nothing from them.

    I can send you a pair if you like...I have several and they are not worth much.

    Just to be sure, are these what your after? Both straps have the extra loop sewn on them.

    Yep, those are the ones! But isn't only one of them supposed to have the extra loop?

    So far i've only seen them with the loops...hundreds of them all the same. One could be removed I suppose.

    I don't have any 50s gear, but i spotted some holsters, a breech cover and some other items here.
    Maybe you can use some of it.

    Very nice! I have yet to find a shovel or one of those medic pouches.

    Michael, if you have an extra shovel I am interested.
