LoC §B9033 Web Equipment, Cavalry, Pattern 1940 - New Patterns. 16th February 1944
Introduces Patt. '40 (a few years late).
Adds Pouches, basic to Patt. '40.
This interesting manual details the uniforms, equipment, and personal kit, including web equipment, required by officers in different areas and type of service. It is included here because it is one of the very few official documents we've found, other than the List of Changes and the FI's above, that mention Pattern 1940 Cavalry Web Equipment. In this instance, Appendix A lists "Web equipment, sets, Cavalry pattern 1940 (including haversack)", as being required for officers in the Horsed Cavalry "during the Present Emergency". From the Karkee Web Collection.
There is a secondary code, E.B. 962, the significance of which is not yet understood. This pamphlet is an identification list for the Webley Mk. IV. It includes pictures and parts lists for the Patt. '40 Pistol set.
