Since the end of World War Two and the increasing threat of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical [NBC] warfare during the Cold War, equipment designers have focused on building NBC protection and decontamination into the British soldier's webbing equipment. The capabilities of 1958-pattern webbing were known to be very poor, yet it was not until the exposure of its shortcomings during the Falklands War of 1982 that a suitable nylon-based load-carrying equipment was developed.
This book explores the development of British webbing equipment starting with the 1958-pattern equipment right up to modern-day modular concepts.

Contents include:· The 1958 pattern webbing· Experimental webbing concepts· Person Load Carrying Equipment [PLCE]· Chest webbing· Modular webbing [MOLLE]· Osprey and Kestrel body armour equipment· Small Arms 80 [SA80] development· Nuclear Biological and Chemical [NBC] equipment
