Collector Bookstore Notes

This book explores the development of British military webbing equipment, from 1958 to today.

Publishers Description:

Since the end of World War Two and the increasing threat of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical [NBC] warfare during the Cold War, equipment designers have focused on building NBC protection and decontamination into the British soldiers webbing equipment. The capabilities of 1958-pattern webbing were known to be very poor, yet it was not until the exposure of its shortcomings during the Falklands War of 1982 that a suitable nylon-based load-carrying equipment was developed.

Topics:

  • 1958 pattern webbing
  • Experimental webbing concepts
  • Personal Load Carrying Equipment (PLCE)
  • Chest Webbing
  • Modular webbing (MOLLE)
  • Osprey & Kestril body armour equipment
  • Small Arms 80 (SA80) development
  • Nuclear Biological & Chemical (NBC) equipment
