Talk:58 pattern webbing
58 pattern usage
I was issued a set briefly before it was replaced with the 95 pattern (essentially 90 pattern but DPM) webbing. This was when i joined the TA in early 1997. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bish777 (talk • contribs) 23:04, 8 October 2008
It was in use not only to British militaries, I guess, but some Commonwelth countries? Aussies, Canadians, NZ? Can someone make it clear?
I was originally issued with 37 pattern webbing in the late 60s. On joining my first field unit in the early 70s, I bought a set of 58 pattern webbing because it was deemed to be far better than 37. (I wasn't the only one to do so).
I was never issued 90 or 95 pattern; I was discharged in 1993. RASAM (talk) 13:48, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
I have in my possession a '58 pattern yoke with no guide loop strips (or whatever the terminology is) for the large pack. There do not appear to be any stitch marks to indicate where these loops would have been, so I assume it's a variation of some kind. I have extended the sentence about variations to include this.
