Default Looking for photos of real troops attaching a clip or more on their sling.

Please post any photos you have or have found of real troops attaching a clip to the sling. I have only seen two. I'm curious how many may have done this.

Thanks in advance.

Mike

I tried hanging clips on a sling just to try it. The method makes for a good speed load but every now and then, a cartridge would be pulled out of line and had to be reseated. I think this method may have led to the practice of banging the bullet tips against a hard object, such as the stock, to seat long rounds.
