Early (60s) SADF Poncho

Postby richardtl » Sun Feb 10, 2019 9:13 pm

The 60s SADF ponchos. The iridescent green ones. Not only was the P58 webbing copied and the accompanying pick & spade, but also so was the British light weight poncho.

Here is a British one and compared to the more olive SADF one which was a little more heavier.

One pic shows the Brit P58 webbing and the carrier with poncho thus showing the direct lineage of the early SADF P61/64 webbing. Note the Brit SLR (L1A1) bayonet
