Hi all,

Very Very new to all this WW1 re-enactment and history.

Does anyone know of places I may be able to get a FULL reproduction WW1 1908/onward (as long as its pre 37 ptn) set of webbing from?

Required Urgently and I dont mind the cost or location.

Anyt other places other than Pegasus Militaria, Khaki on Campaign and Lawrence Ordnance (who sadly dont return messages) :o

Hi Paul and everyone else,

Thanks for the help. Im looking for British 1908 Pattern if that helps a little more to anyone, if anyone knows of other sources just keep them rolling in! I'll do anything to get a nice new shiny set. Im trying to portray WW1/Interwar and Early WW2 Royal Marine in memory of my Grandfather(s) and I'm trying to re-create a photo the family has of one when they were in Holland in May 1940 during German occupation in an attempt (which proved successful) to save the dutch government and Royal Family.

Also darn handy for my Great Grand Fathers Royal Marine Light Infantry Uniform too from WW1.

All help is a ppreciated and I'll gladly reward the winner who helps me complete my quest if that helps!

Regards,

Chris

What's wrong with Khaki on Campaign/Richard Knight? :huh: His 1908 ammunition pouches are the best, and the quality of the webbing he uses is spot on for the orginal (unlike some which is thinner or of a looser weave to the originals).

Nothing Wrong with Dickie Knight at all, far from it. I have had allot of stuff from him through our group before now and met him this year at Norfolk in September. Great guy and perfect quality.

I merely want to see what else is about on the scene for offer and I've seen his pouches first hand, I have a pair for my Home Guard kit and they are 100% top notch but sadly he dosent do the FULL kit and I'd rather get kit complete from 1 place so it all matches in colour, quality and what not.

Like I said, nothing wrong with Dickie Knight! Just shopping around, if anyone knows else where let me know.

Brest Regards,

Chris

Hello Chris,

Below I've listed the suppliers that I recomend for the purchase of various British WW.1 equipment items. Unfortunately, although 'Dichie Knight' supplies excellant reproduction items, his prices are twice+ those of my listing. Obviously, postage plays a huge part in aquiring items for ones WW.1 impression. The sutlers listed supply excellant quality, and they give one a decent choise to suit ones individual pocket.

Incidentally, I would advice to stear clear of: replicators.com (based in Pakistan). From past exeriance, I personaly found items purchased to be of inferior quality, and the customer service is deplorable. However, thats my personal opinnion.

Ah, ok! I'm biased, since he runs the Vickers Machine Gunners Society 1914-45, of which I'm a member, but I have various bits of kit made or repaired by him, and it's always been excellent.

Incidentally, with the exception of the large pack and belt (both easily available as originals), he does otherwise do a full set of repro 1908 webbing (cross straps, pouches, frog, e-tool helve carrier, small pack).

Twice the price maybe, but the quality and accuracy (especially his caps and headwear) to back it up make it worthwhile.

Andrew, there is no denying the quality of DK's items, I have one of his SD caps and a Gor-Blimey. I looked a little nearer to ourselves here in California for ease of aquisition of '08' webb equipment and other items, but not sacrificeing quality.

When selecting sutlers, one has to cater for all pockets of ones troops, not only for those with vertually unlimited funds, but also those with limited income. However, quality is the key word, and I do recommend to my chaps that they purchase 'DK's' headdress.

Hi Seph,

Thanks for your help my friend.

Dickie Machine Gunners bloomin great I say, saw them at the Norfolk Show this year at Holt and it really was great to meet him. Just enquired about some Gaiters to be honest. I cant find a apir of the webbing/canvas gaiters (pre war) they were about 10 inchces high and hoping he can make some for me.

Any Way thanks for the help guys, Lets see how far I get with this then.

Any advice on those gaiters or anything leave a message or drop me a PM

Chris.
