Quick Overview

Due to drastic shortages of webbing equipment during the First World War, Australia produced a version of the 1908 web equipment in leather. More expensive and less durable than the Mills webbing, the leather equipment was intended to be used by the AIF for training purposes only, however, period photographs show it being used by troops in France and Belgium.

Details

Due to drastic shortages of webbing equipment during the First World War, Australia produced a version of the 1908 web equipment in leather. This equipment, which is colloquially known as Pattern 1915 or Pattern 08/15, was both more expensive and less durable than the Mills webbing. Although intended to be used by the AIF for training purposes only, period photographs show it being used by troops in France and Belgium.

The cartridge carriers of the Australian leather equipment went through numerous changes throughout the war. These examples are of a later style that use buckles with tongues, and a pouch with flap and snap or stud closure. Original pieces of this First World War equipment are becoming increasingly difficult to find. These pouches are in very good condition and are outstanding examples of a rare First World War equipment.
