A blast from the past, memories of my mis-spent youth.

Prior to the general issue of combat body armour, these vests from Combat Clothing Australia were very popular amongst vehicle crew (armoured and soft skin) to carry a minimal but useful fighting load with minimal bulk.

The vest carries a useful load of four rifle magazines, two shell dressings and a general purpose pouch for a jacket, rain coat or other miscellaneous equipment.
There is capability to mount a pistol belt on the bottom of the vest. Although I didn’t know too many who took that option.
