Default South African Kit

Got some Stuff and just like to know what Model?
Is it the 1973 Pattern Stuff?
Are the small Pockets for Magazines?
The Frog was for the F.A.L. Bayo or also for others?

Thanks for the Info.
Is it a mistake that some sellers state them as 73 Ptn. and not 70?
I find them with both descriptions in the Net, or is there a difference on them?

the official sadf designation was pattern 70 not 71,67 or 74 it was standard issue until replaced by the pattern 83 equipment which included the pattern 83 battle jacket, a pattern 80 also was manufactured but is very hard to find so probably made in small numbers
