KG3 Blanco Block (1)

Code: 10334

SOLD

A block of KG3 shade blanco equipment protector, in its original brown paper wrapping.

The Khaki Green No3 shade blanco was standardised as the adopted colour for the treating and protecting of webbing equipment in 1942. There were many varieties of blanco that could be privately purchased. This example is a circular puck that would be applied to the webbing with the addition of water and a brush.

The block itself is in good solid condition, with a few chips as pictured. It is one of two available (see item: 10335), with the addition of another commercial variant also listed (item: 10333).
