Lightweight rucksack worn by Major PJ Burtt in Vietnam, 1969. Major Burtt served with the New Zealand Component, 1ATF based at Nui Dat.
The 1965 Lightweight Rucksack design featured a riveted aluminium tubular frame rather than the welded frame of the experimental and early production models. It also had a thin waist strap with a snap hook in place of the P64 version’s quick-release belt.
