Pattern 1939 Leather Infantry Equipment

Fitting Instructions

togetherNo instructional pamphlet was issued, perhaps because it was felt to replicate Patt. ’37 sufficiently for that Pattern’s instructions to suffice. An oblique reference, in a post-war book, to “…a picture of ‘Equipment Pattern 39’ hanging not un-observed on the wall of an office…” may indicate a full poster, on the lines of those produced by Mills, or it may be some lesser offering.
