    I did ask both. So issue would be P25 and WWII would have been P37? Where does P28 come into play?

    If you were living in the real world of tanks and the tankies who had zillions of these pistols, you would have no concept of what was what regarding 'the right' webbing equipment. A holster was a holster was a holster and you got what you were issued with and came from the technical stores or in the tank supplementary CES. Everyone needs to sit down and take that on board - and get out a bit. It's like asking what tyres your Land Rover would have been fitted with between 1960 and 1970. They'd be round, black and made of rubber by about 8 or 10 different makers and your Land Rover would get what the FAMTO stores sent out to the tyre bay!

    You joke about Tyres Peter but my 42 Ford GPW actually left the factory with Ford made tyres or Tires as our cousins call them and that's what I've purchased to fit to it.

    Sorry if I sound frustrated here but I'm trying to inject a bit of reality or just plain common bleedin' sense into the forum where sometimes, occasionally reality only seems to feature in small doses. Yes, but this pistol didn't leave Enfield with a holster or a landyard or a cleaning rod or 6 rounds on the pockets or an ammo pouch. It was issued from Ordnance to the units as a bare pistol, probably with 500 others to a, say, tank regiment somewhere. That's how it is in the real world

    That is exactly what I was wondering. If they were not issued with a holster than either would work for me.

    Is this leather belt proper WWII for use with Enfield No2 Holster?

    Somewhere I have an original WW2 Britishicon "tank crew suit" which my father purchased as surplus post WW2 for riding motorbikes off road. This is a drab green/khaki colour overall before British tank crews started wearing black overalls. I haven't looked closely at this item for ages but, from memory, I seem to think that the suit it's self incorporated various pockets/pouches etc for holding equipment, built into the suit. I don't think that the suit had provision for holding a pistol, but can't be sure on this until I have a look at it again.

    Are they WW2 Britishicon Home Guard issue? The Home Guard used leather equipment, sometimes, as a substitute for webbing, allegedly because there wasn't such a shortage of leather. The Home Guard leather ammo/utility pouch are a good example of this.

    I don't know. I saw it for sale and was wondering myself. They are on EBay.

    They could be Home Guard, although I'd got the idea that the buckle was different for their belt, unless they used leather belts with more than one design of buckle?


    This is an example of the type of "alternative leather pouch" used by the Britishicon Home Guard during WW2. Obviously they required belts and straps etc to hold the pouch in position on the soldier.
