History / Summary

This Iraqi webbing was found during a Sensitive Site Exploitation of Al Asad Air Force base by the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR), 4 Battalion Royal Australian Regiment Commando (4RAR CDO) and the Incident Response Regiment (IRR) element on 16 May 2003. This particular set of webbing appears to be loosely based on the British 1944 pattern webbing.
