  • The Battle Belt

    Morning folks,

    While perusing DF Flickr this morning, I came across the Recce Commanders Course Combat Shooting gallery. The Battle Belt seems to be all the rage at present, and I am wondering if there's been any guidance on the use or loadout?

    The Gallery for those interested is located here
    What are you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem.

        Private purchase.All of them. Battle belt will go on issue when IMBAS comes on stream. Only people wearing Battle belts at present are the Wing and Snipers,
        Nobody wears them while using the Battlevest in the field as the bottom of the vest comes down too low and pouches on the belt would get caught on it.

        Notice in the pictures that anybody wearing the battlevest has had to empty all their pouches on the strongside in order to be able to quick draw from the holster without obstruction?Either that or firers are just wearing GSBA "slick" with no pouches to get in the way.

        "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.
