everything made between 1916 and and 1948

lazily hanging over the saddle is 1948 dated girth made from parachute web tape

the saddle has 1940 dated skirts and is marked to SW 112th

Very nice '28. I'm so jealous of the girth. I missed out on a 1940 dated one a while back and haven't been in a position to get another one. Are your stirrups original to the saddle and are they the cut down '04 stirrups like on mine or are they the ones made very late and often seen dtd 1944? Are the bars lined with Sheepskin or are they plain?. Sorry for all the questions but I've been fascinated by the '28 for years since they have so much variety. Also the '24 saddlebags are killer. Again, many people don't know just how rare they are and your set are primo.

Gday Tom

The mohair girth is new to the fleet,the para-tape one came with the saddle (the tape one is dated 48,not the mohair one)

The stirrups are 42 dated JQMD marked ones.

The saddle has plain bars,the 28 saddle bags are 1917 dated Spaulding converts

The only non period part is the raincoat,its one of the prop ones from Pursuit of Honour

The scabbard for the 03 is dated 43,also a dark shade 40 model canteen made in 1944 from the good guys at Boyt

In the 1st pic on the ladder is set of saddle bags,packed and ready to go,along with a complete bridle and halter (on the floor) as well

as 1912 cooling strap,also somewhere in all the junk is a ww2 dated feedbag,again from Boyt
