As well as the standard infantry load bearing equipment, a number of specialist pouches were also developed for the PLCE set. Wire cutters have been issued to soldiers almost since the introduction of barbed wire as a defensive weapon in the mid-nineteenth century. Some of these designs of cutters were to prove exceptionally long lasting and the folding British army wire cutters had a very lengthy service life and I believe they are still in general use today, despite the design dating back at least as far as 1915- over a hundred years for a piece of kit is not a bad service life!
The PLCE frog for these cutters is a wedge shaped pouch in DPM Cordua nylon:The cutters fit in like this:Due to the heavy duty nature of the contents, the top flap of this pouch is secured with both a press stud and a strip of Velcro:This particular example was manufactured in 2004 as indicated on the label sewn onto the underside of the top flap:The back of the pouch will be familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of PLCE webbing:The small loop is to pass a steadying string through. Above this is the main belt loop, secured with press studs. Lifting this flap reveals the plastic T-bars that engage with the small pockets on a PLCE belt:I don’t believe this pouch is too hard to find, but as with this example you might have to source the cutters themselves separately and then put the pair back together again!
