Default Strap length questions

Hi everyone

I have a couple of questions regarding the lenght of a few straps. These are all for the early rubber style ones and I can't seem to find any references on them.

Number one is for the jack retaining bracket. This one looks to be rather long as it must go over the top of the jack and the block and back down again.

Number two is for the small jacking bar retaining bracket mounted on top of the crew stowage locker.

Number three is the double rifle holder that mounts on the armoured rad cover in the back left hand side.

Thanks again

Can you post a pic of a Canadian issue jack. I think the strap goes around the side of the jack, and locates it sideways in the bracket.The mount bkt. for the strap is at an angle isn't it?
