Ron, what's tougher on leather, 120 degrees in the desert or minus 50 degrees on the Steppe? I believe Canvas gear such as belts and bayo frogs were simply Ersatz items and found in all theatres of the war. I know I've seen photos of guys wearing canvas(webbing) belts and they were in Europe.quote:Originally posted by Ron Smith
Geo, I always thought that nearly all canvas or tropical type gear, would be attributed to Africa Korps issue. Shows ya how much I know.
