Can anyone help me ID'ing this pouch?

The 5-cell TSMG Ammo Pouch and 20Rd Mag is for reference...

Although two 20Rd mags fit the pouch perfectly, I have no idea if this is what is intended to hold...

No markings... could it be British Made????????

Thanks,

Johan

Hmmmmm, I have no idea? http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

Looks like British canvas or pre/early WW2 US canvas. Are the LTDs British made?

Does the LTD have a raised "dot" on the bottom front? All British Made US items with LTDs have this type.

Johan,

Most likely not British Made then. Pre/early WW2 US manufactured or as Lloyd said Australian made. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

It's typical of pre-war gear...

The ammo,pouches on my M1917 Garrison Belt are exactly like this!

this pouch makes me think of the Perdersen Device Pouch, allthough I think that pouch is bigger, since it allows the device & 5 40round mags...

Nah it ain't a peterson device clip pouch the snap is on the side. It might be a French made thompson clip pouch. The French bought thompons in the thirties or so. I really don't have a clue just throwin it out there. Maybe someone can find some pics. Sorry I couldn't be much help.

This appears to be identrical with a pouch I got from an OSS vet -- for the UD M42 SMG. No markings, but seems to be a MECO (Mills Equipment Co.) product or clone/imitation. It is meant to take the back-to-back, welded-together 20-rd 9mm mags.

Yes, it seems that is what's it for.

I've posted more info here:

With the J_Andrews lead I managed to find the following info. It confirms what he said and also the info includes the 4 pocket mag pouch as well. The OSS pic has been used in several publications.
