GREAT WAR (WW1, WWI, WORLD WAR ONE) UNIFORMS AND GEAR FOR THE AUSTRALIAN (AIF) ARMY, NEW ZEALAND ARMY (NZEF) AND ANZAC FORCES & REENACTING UNITS.
Welcome to Ujna Universal's page for the Great War (ww1, wwi, world war one) uniforms, equipment, badges, patches and gear for the Australian (AIF) army, New Zealand army (NZEF) and ANZAC forces. We have successfully replicated each article of the uniform and gear of the Australian ww1 (wwi, world war one) (AIF) army down to the smallest detail to bring your museum quality articles. This aspect of our business is still in it's infancy, largely due to lack of demand for New Zealand army (NZEF) products and fewer re-enactors in the AIF era compared to others. We have, however, managed to replicate all the uniform and webbing articles on the ANZAC, AIF and NZEF armies and are working on most of the other equipments to round off the militaria requirements for reenactors, collectors and living history enthusiasts for this era. Our biggest success was in replicating exactly the 100% wool Bedford Cord fabric for use in breeches or Jodhpurs. Here are some of our uniforms, webbing and gear for the Great War (ww1, wwi, world war one) Australian (AIF) army and ANZAC forces:
Great War ww1 (wwi, world war one) Australian (AIF) Tunic or jacket: This tunic is a 100% replication of the service dress tunic of the 1914 Australian pattern SD tunic and is available in 100% wool of the correct weight. The tunic comes with full belt with brass buckle and bakelite buttons. The ww1 AIF Australian blouse or tunic is made loose fitting to allow movement and air to circulate freely. There are 4 large pockets in the front of the tunic as well as an internal bandage pocket on the inside left front skirt. The rear of the tunic is heavily pleated with a double fold extending down the spine. An internal shell dressing pocket is provided. The tunic, including custom tailoring as per size chart, is US$ 110 (UK Pounds 55, Euro 92, AU$ 128) delivered anywhere in the world.
Great War ww1 (wwi, world war one) Australian (AIF) Breeches or Jodhpurs: We make these in two types. The first in the same fabric as the tunic and these are priced at US$ 74 (UK Pounds 37, Euro 62, AU$ 86) delivered anywhere in the world, including custom tailoring.

There are two waist pockets and a small fob pocket on the ww1 Australian (AIF) breeches of both types. The mounted pattern Australian ww1 Great war breeches or Jodhpurs are longer, laced up at the bottom of the leg, have reinforced inner legs, a reinforced seat and pockets which are horizontal slash openings below the waist band.

Great War ww1 (wwi, world war one) Australian (AIF) webbing gear: Our webbing is replicated from the yarn onwards. We do not dye webbing, we dye the yarn and then actually make the webbing from this yarn on web looms which were actually used to make webbing. The results are obvious. Every metal article has been carefully replicated by making a pressure die, not a casting die which is normally used. The basic set of equipment consisted of a 3 inch wide waist belt, with two angled 2 inch buckles at the rear. To these buckles the shoulder straps attach. These shoulder straps are 2 inches wide, and go over the shoulder and then buckle to the left and right hand ammo pouches, at the front of the belt. The left and right hand ammunition pouches consisted of five individual pockets, three underneath and two above, the shoulder strap is buckled to the top of the set and passed behind and underneath, there is a diagonal 1" strap leading to the rear, this is to secure the lower portion of the pack. When the rifle ammo pouches are not worn, these shoulder straps can be attached to a pair of brace attachments, or simply looped about the belt. A haversack is supplied that can be worn in a variety of positions, and methods. In this example it is worn hanging below the waist belt, but it can be also worn in the middle of the back, the lower 1 inch buckles, fixed to two 1 inch diagonal straps coming from the ammo pouches or the 'brace' attachments. An entrenching tool carrier, and water bottle carrier are also worn at or below the waist. The entrenching tool is a two piece device and the handle of which is carried strapped to the bayonet scabbard, and attached to the bayonet frog. This piece is call the 'helve carrier' or 'helve attachment' and is probably one of the most difficult pieces to locate today. A large pack was also carried and this was almost universally carried only on the back. Two long 1 inch straps were required to be used when fitting the large pack, these are known as the valise straps. The mess tin was carried where convenient, usually in the haversack.
