A lovely perfectly matched pair of 1908 Pattern Cartridge Carriers in very good condition. The Pouches are only very lightly service used and nicely retain their original issue fawn webbing colour.

Upon close examination it would seem they have at one time had a single very light coat of Blanco applied. This is very hard to discern as it has all but completely disappeared now, making them to all extents and purposes appear unblancoed.

They are a perfect match in both colour and condition and have clearly always be worn as a pair. Both are completely without damage with all press studs working well. The right hand pouch has a faint date of 1916 or 1918 whilst the date markings on the left hand are too faded to make out.

A  rare set that would prove difficult to upgrade.
