Having just acquired one of these, I'd like to fill it properly.

Does anyone have a copy of the packing list please?

Is this the one that is worn instead of the small pack? Or the one which looks like a normal shell dressing bag but with additional flaps under the lid?

It's stamped NCO on the flap, slightly larger than a Shell Dressing bag. Detachable shoulder strap, no fittings for shoulder straps.

Internally there's a pencil pouch on the top flap, main compartment divided into two, with a number of small straps andpouches.

Cheers.

How is that possible?

No worries mate. Got a winter lay off to get it sorted. (Autumn / winter the 40's kit is mothballed as most events are Victorian. )

Hi there,

The pack you are talking about is the "1942 Pattern, Haversack, Surgical, Airborne" - it pre dates the Don and Sugar packs.

I have just uploaded photos of this haversack, contents, and descriptions onto the 16PFA website, which I have now taken over from Kenny Morland.

Here the link:

http://www.spanglefish.com/16parachutef ... eid=527873

Am re-developing the site into a bit more of an online resource into Airborne Medical equipment - lots more updates coming, so pop back on a regular basis!!

Cheers,

Dickie Townsley
