Ministry of Defence did not have the information requested.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

Im a collector of U.K. military's and I recently purchased a DPM trial Bergen and the name on the issue label reads 'Mantiss Red' there is no NSN number.

I have tried to google 'Mantiss Red' and nothing appears except a picture of a load carrying vest.

Can you advise what 'Mantiss Red' was and what items I.e bergens, vests etc were produced and numbers?

Yours faithfully,
