  1. The "serial number" around 0:32 is actually what is called the NSN or National Stock Number which is used by all NATO nations and many allies. The 99 means that it was made in the UK. The other numbers give a clue on the purpose plus the actual item number. Note that you can google the NSN and you might be able to find the item online.

  2. Thanks for posting this.

    I can see using it as an auxiliary to the BOB/GHB for enhanced weapons/first aid.  It looks easy and handy to sling on even when wearing a pack.
