WEBBING EQUIPMENT BRACES, BRACE ATTACHMENTS AND BELTS ATTACHING THESE COMPONENT PARTS

 

AS WITH MOST SETS OF BRITISH WEBBING LOOKS COMPLICATED BUT IS FAIRLY EASY TO SORT AND PUT TOGETHER FROM ITS COMPONAINT PARTS WHICH ARE SHOWN IN PICTURES 1- 4

 

THE BELT IS A 3 PART ITEM THE 2 FRONT SECTIONS ARE THE SAME LENGTH WITH THE MIDDLE SECTION BING MADE IN 3 DIFFRENT SIZES S, M & L THE MOST COMMON SIZE SECTION ENCOUNTERED IS A S AS THIS WOULD FIT A WAIST OF UP TO A 32 - 34.

 

TAKE THE 3 PARTS OF THE BELT LAY THEM FLAT ON THE FLOOR USE A TAPE MEASURE TO MEASURE ALONG THE BELT TO YOUR SIZE FIT THEM TOGETHER AT THIS PIONT REMBER IT GOES OVER A TUNIC , SO AT THIS POINT PUT ON YOUR TUNIC AND PLACE THE BELT AROUND THE MIDRIFT AND ADJUST ACORDINGLY TO FIT WHEN THIS IS DONE I WOULD NORMALLY MARK ON THE INSIDE PART OF THE BELTS IN PENCIL ( VERY GOOD TIP THIS ) WHERE THE CLIPS FIT ON THE INSIDE OF THE BELT THUS IF YOU DECIDE TO BLANCO OR MAKE IT ALL MATCHING ( NOT ON A MINT SET PLEASE ) YOU CAN TAKE THE BELT APART AND PUT IT BACK TOGETHER AGAIN IN THE RIGHT PLACE THIS ALSO GOS FOR YOUR OTHER BELTS ETC

 

BRACE ATTACHMENTS THESE UNLIKE THE 37 PATTERN EXAMPLES HAVE A D RING TO THE END FOR ATTACHING THE MAP CASE , COAT CARRIER OR SIDE PACK ETC THESE ARE ATTACHED BY MAKING A LOOP AT THE FRONT END OF THE BELT SLIDING THE REAR PART ( NOTE THE JOIN IN THE WEBBING IN THE PIC THIS IS THE EASY WAY TO TELL THE DIFFRENCE FROM FRONT AND REAR ) OF THE CLIP THROUGH THE BELT AND PUSH THE BAR SECTION DOWN AND PULL THROUG THE BELT SO ITS TIGHT

 

BRACES ( SUSSPENDER STRAPS ) THESE CAME IN 2 PATTERNS WITH OUT A LOOP OR WITH A LOOP THE ONE WITH OUT THE LOOP WOULD PASS THROUGH THE LOOP WITH THE LOOP NEAREST TO THE BACK NOW THE SAME SIDE OF THE STRAP IS PLACED THROUGH THE 2 PART OF THE BUCKLE THE TOP PART IS FOR ATTACHING THE PACKS TO SO THIS NEED TO BE LEFT EMPTY .

 

THESE 3 ITEMS ABOVE GO TOGETHER AND FORM THE BASIC SET TO CARRY THE SIDE PACK AND OR THE RUCK SACK OR COAT CARRIER ETC AND ALLOWING THE WATER BOTTLE TO BE CARRIED AS WELL SEE PICS 4 -6  AT THIS POINT I USED THE 4 FINGERS ( BASIC HAND WIDTH TO POSITION THEM FROM THE EDGE OF THE BELT REINFORCEMENT EDGE ) PIC 6

I HAVE SLIPPED THE END OF THE BRACES THROUGH THE D RINGS THIS STABERLIZES THE STRAPS AND STOPS THEM FROM MOVING AND FLAPPING AROUND WHEN WALKING / MARCHING  AND STILL ALLOWS KIT TO BE ATTACHED TO THE D RINGS AND STRAPS AND ACTS AS A STABERLIZING METHOD FOR THE ADDED KIT . YOU CANT DO THIS ON THE 37 PATTERN WEBBING WHICH GOES TO GETHER THE SAME WAY BAR THE BELT WHICH IS 1 PEACE AND HAS REAR ADJUSTMENT HOOKS.
