I have a few items that you haven't pictured. Would you like for me to include them here?

Wow, thanks for sharing Ron. I have been trying to find one of these for my collection for some time but so far have been unsuccessful.

Regards,
Ben.

A great selection of British-made gear...good to see it en masse like that. I have some similar web-gear of my own plus some uniform items (ETOs) I can add if you wish to expand the thread?

These were posted on the forum over a year ago so many of our newer members might not have seen them? They are examples of British made-for-US "ETO" jackets, developed from the British Battledress blouse and ultimately evolving into the famous "Ike" jacket.

First pattern ETO jacket. A fusion of design features from the battledress blouse and M41 jacket. Widely issued to USAAF personnel.

Second pattern ETO jacket. A refinement of the first pattern. Sometimes mistaken for a BD in contemporary pics!

Officers' quality ETO jacket. Manufactured in modest numbers, therefore quite scarce.

I also collect British-Made gear. My collection doesn't hold a candle to the items listed here. Thanks for providing a great reference.

I have two pieces of green over-dyed British-Made equipment. Is anyone interested in seeing photos of those items? (The pieces are a Cartridge Belt and First Aid Pouch)

Thanks.

British Made duffle bag. It's not US marked, but it was used by a GI. I'm not sure if this qualifies for this topic.
