Ha! I'll stick to Korean War stuff - much more straight forward. Belgian '37 Webbing until 1952, US war surplus after that. As I say, I'll take a closer look next time I see it, I must say I'm surprised that I haven't seen any pics detailing webbing like this in the 1950s-60s. Quite surprising in fact.

Well, sorry to resurrect this thread, but I've finally found a picture to illustrate my point:

(issued to a Chasseur Ardennais)

Any ideas?

That could be the Mills stuff - it looks similar to 08, with certain 37 fixings...

Brigade-Piron,

If you go to this website: http://www.abbl1940.be/ABBL1940files/AB ... ameset.htm

Go to "Uitrusting" -> "Patroontas" -> FM

It will tell everything you want to know about the FM30 gear you want to know.
Its all in Dutch and since you are belgian, there is a 50/50 chance you speak dutch :D
Otherwise you can try google-translate.
If you still have some questions, maybe I can be of some assistance


Kind Regards, Vincent
