    "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

            What's a fair price ? Does it ride well with PLCE because we still don't have IPLCS.... poo

              Trell I have an OG Version of the saracen. Its a long back bag. But I've found with a bit adjustment its on top of webbing. It's a lot more fomfortable than the PLCE Issue bag. It also takes the issue rocket pouches.

                The waist belt on the Saracen is designed to spread the load of the Bergen between hips and shoulders.

                      Suppose I'll start....
                      (A recent trip to the mechanics has prompted me to sell a few bits.)


                      DPM Shortback PLCE Bergan, complete with side/rocket pouches (no yoke). This has been my bergan for the last 12 years. Selling because I have a new bergan now. The waist belt has been cut away and there's small hole on the bottom of the exterior front pouch courtesy of an E-Tool. Other than that, it's absolutely solid. My name is written on it, hence the black mark.

                      SOLD


                      MOLLE ACU First Aid pouch. Ideal utility/LMG pouch. Pretty much brand new, never used. Was going to spray it and add it to my stock of pouches, decided to sell instead.

                      SOLD


                      MICH style airsoft helmet. I think it's made of fibre glass. The shape is ideal for wearing peltors/active ear defence/headsets. Heavy enough to pass off as the real thing, not that I'd ever suggest wearing an airsoft helmet for military training because the issued helmet doesn't accommodate peltors and alike.

                      SOLD

                      I might have a few more things, will check the shed some other day.

                      Prices not inclusive of P&P. Please PM if interested.

                        Ive a protac shortback bergan in Irish DPM for sale, bought it back in 2005 and not really got a use for it, only drawback is that its not got detachable rocket pouches. smaller than the bergan but bigger than a patrol pack. will post pics up shortly, 50 euro ono also got an airsoft / paintball mich ach plastic helmet for sale for 20 euro, NOT for military use under any circumstances, but it did save my bonce when i fell through a shed roof recently.

                          I have A Protac Irish DPM chest rig. Used once, during a Corps concentration, and quite pleased with it. It does what it says on the tin. Three ammo pouches up front, with plastic clip fastners that Mr Protac loves, instead of the silent locks found on PLCE. Map pocket behind them, closed with two stud fasteners. Utility pouches at each side, large enough to accomodate a 58 Pat water bottle, again with plastic clip fasteners and Velcro.
                          I bought it in 2007 or thereabouts for €90. It currently takes up valuable wardrobe space. Shortly to appear on ebay.
