Hi everyone,

I apologise if this is a stupid question but where was the Mills Equipment webbing and kit manufactured during the First World War?
I'm aware the Mills Equipment Company was based in the US but was any of the webbing produced in the National Factories in the UK?

Any information will be gratefully received.

Regards,

Chris

Yes, it was made in the UK. There's some info in the Pattern 1908 section of Karkeeweb:

Martin Wright & Sons (marked 'MW&S') also made P08 in the UK during WWI.
