MkII or MkI... maybe 2 or 3 as they're a bit too short for them and you need to put the mags in sideways (a bit).

MKIII... up to about 5 mags, though note that not all MkIIIs are actually long enough for more mags than a MkII takes.

Basically, it depends...

Are they the green ones?
They are a pretty good match for KG3 blancoed webbing if they are.

As for WW2 stuff, how about a box of unissued silk para wings, with the over embroidered canopy? As for other treasures, well, the usual Sabre surprises. And Nick paid for lunch, so it wasn't an entirely bad day.




1972 Pattern Webbing.

Is any of this for sale?
