37 Pattern British Long Drop Holster

A very nice date matched set of the so called “Long Drop” British ’37 pattern Holster, intended originally for armoured troops but well known to have been used by both Airborne Troops and Glider Pilots.
This complete set, by MECo, carries a 1942 date to both the legs strap which is also stamped 28 inch and to the long vertical hanging strap, attached to the Holster itself.
Overall condition is very good with some light rust marks but no damage. The Holster itself show evidence of having been Blancoed at some time.
