    Right, back again.
    Here's a used, but good condition Luftwaffe tropical blue pack with blue webbing. This one's dated 1941. As you can see, they utilise the same hook's as the standard green or tan 'Y's.

        The colour in the un-exposed areas is a rich blue.
        Hope this adds to the discussion of Simon's exceptional set of straps.
        Regards,
        Mark.

          Hello Mark,
          The construction of the blue carrying straps of your Rucksack is not the same than on green or tan Y-straps...On yours, the strap with D-ring is stitched to the main strap and the strap with hooks is part of this main strap, which is the opposite on green & tan Y-straps.
          These blue web Y-straps are made like the leather ones...
          but why's that ?

            Hi Jean,
            I was only refering to the hook set-up to the webbing, not the main webb straps. My apologies if that was not clear. (I have altered my desription to be more precise). Yes, the Luftwaffe blue webbing main support/ammunition hook strap is one piece on my pack and Simon's 'Y' set, as opposed to the green or tan 'Y' straps which have the ammunition hook strap as the sewn on attachment.
            To show what I mean, here are the two variations -

              And again, the Luftwaffe pattern.
              So, fair question - why the difference in construction for basically the same arrangement/item?
              Mark.

                  Thanks

                  Thanks Mark for all the pics you posted. You have probably shown the top one collection of AK web fieldgear on Wehrmacht Awards. It is always a pleasure to look at it.

                  Hi Glenn, I think that you would have hard time to find 43' dated web fieldgear, as their maker marks are almost ever unreadable...

                      you speak the truth Simon. I already realized that after viewing many, many examples of web gear and decided that for my trop examples Im going to go with stickly RBNr #s. this way Ill still be able to keep a "uniform" grouping of pieces. they will be displayed on my tan/water smock that also is RBNr #. but this ensemble wont be complete for a few years to come as trop stuff isnt the cheapest things out there unfortunately.

                        Simon - Thank you, but I don't think so (always room for improvement... )
                        Jean - Quite Right
                        Glenn - Amen to that, Brother

                            Helmut, How is length your short strap? 55cm?
                            It's my short strap in blue color.
