Hi Everyone, lots of us probably have some items in our collection that we don't know what they were used for, or cannot do any research on them. Here are a couple of items, they are not connected in anyway. The long scabbard style item with leather tip probably held something with a sharp end, the lift dot at the top actually attaches to whatever was carried in this pouch. The item on the right of the photo is a large circular loop with a metal ring at the bottom, and a spring clip at the top. Would love some input or suggestions on these please. Cheers Lewis

I think the spring clip item belong with a pinton hammer for use in rock climbing?.

Hi Bilko / Dave, thanks for the post on the web loop, however I think the web is too thin , and the actual size of the loop too large for the head of the hammer to be held securely.
When this thread runs out I will post some more items hoping that someone may identify. ( Lewis )

By the colour and "style" of the webbing and the look of them...Ken they look to be a WW1 item..possibly Cavalry for Horse troops

Regards

Could it be for flag-carrying for a Color Guard?

While the piece to the right isn't the exact same as this, it does remind me of it. Try either a MP baton / nightstick or a GI flashlight.

This is a really old thread, but the item on the left looks like it was designed to carry a sharp instrument. Possibly a pair of shear or scissor like tool.
