I was in Mogadishu and Baidoa w/ Lima 3/9 during Restore Hope. We had the standard ALICE 782 gear. We didn't have LBVs yet. In fact I think they were starting to roll into our supply when I was getting out in late '94.
My set-up was the following:

M56 h-harness (my own, as I hate y-straps)
pistol belt
x2 M16 mag pouches
x7 M16 magazines, 30rnd, w/ 140rnds 5.56mm (we had a round count EVERY morning)
M56 buttpack (my own)
x2 canteens w/ covers
first aid/compass pouch
first aid kit (attached to the carry strap on my buttpack)
M17 gas mask w/ carrier
Ek Commando knife (my own, inverted on my h-harness)

Our weapon "speed" slings were much like the ones seen in BHD, modified w/ 550 cord for length. We were told to fix them in this fashion for personal safety while on check point duty or duties around the indigenous population.
As far as clothing/camo items we had the following:

x2 chocolate chip uniform (no US flag patch)
1 set of pink panthers (3-color)
x2 chocolate chip boonies
desert boots
chocolate chip flak cover
chocolate chip k-pot cover

We were only issued one set of the pink panthers, IIRC, because we had a very limited supply of them. We had to iron-on EG&A and USMC to the pockets of the utility tops, and an EG&A to the front of the helmet cover. Hope this helped a little.

"I was there in 1994. We wore your basic 782 gear. Helmet, h- harness, flack vest, mag pouches, butt pack, canteens, first aid kit (if you call it that) and an alice pack. Thats about it."

Reason: please dont hotlink very large (file size) images. 100kb per image is ok, 300kb is not.

The documentary called "The True Story of Black Hawk Down" has lot of real life footage from Mogadishu. It had pretty good video clip from the Olympic Hotel. Its kind of strange to watch that documentary, as its stuff is played out in the Black Hawk Down movie, in most parts... precisely.

If you haven't seen the documentary, watch it as its readily available on all sorts of online video services or you can download the actual avi so you can watch it "high" quality any time you wish. For example here is torrent for it.

Was browsing Somalia news as usual, this one photo caught my eye.

Turkish ship carrying aid to famine-hit Somalia arrives in Mogadishu
Image

I'm sure within time that image goes offline, I have saved it and if you're a Somalia researcher, you should too. I can't be sure that is mogadishu harbor, it might be in turkey too. However again that is the closest real life photo reference I can remember for that harbor building.
