If that Brit made pouch is for the belt it must be the trouser belt, it does not look large enough to fit on the pistol belt. Maybe it will fit on a leather lineman's belt.

Were British Made items for the US used in the Pacific Theater of Operations, or only in the European Theater? http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

Thank you.

The Brit made items were intended for the ETO. Some could have slipped through to other areas but on an individual level rather then through the QM. In other theaters there was other gear made in theater. Lots of Aussie made gear in PTO and tons of things were made in CBI.

Markings.
I had notice that this pouch is slightly bigger than the US made ones.

A few years back this present British Government closed down the British army pattern rooms. This is where there was the first or premier example of every item ever used by the army in the last couple of hundred years. I was very fortunate to get two items from there #1 being the first example of the British made musette for U.S. forces dated 1943, #2 being the new standard non polish ( Stay-Bright ) wings for the SAS, pattern dated Feb 1964, and marked ' property of the War Office'. The cord holding the wings has a wax and a lead seal on the rear of the card, there is also a small bag to hold the wings.

Due to the fakers ( thats with an ' A' or you could use a ' U' if desired ) I am not showing the sheet for the musette bag, I don't want to start a cottage industry out there with re-production. Johan I will show you this musette and the sheet next time we meet.



Just a wee note to same save confusion: ;)

The SAS "wings" shown above is a SAS Regimental Cap-Badge. The SAS Para Wings are a completely different thing.
