They are selling this odd pouch on Belgium ebay. Any idea?
Quite strange that narrow loop for the hook.

It looks like it was made out of a Pattern 37 British Ammo Pouch....

I can't imagine the reason for a two positions flap. Maybe multipurpose, compass or loose revolver ammo.

I think it is made from a piece of Belgian webbing, post war and similar to the British pattern.
Perhaps a Belgian member could give us an answer.

The European militaria market is flooded with strange quasi-P37 webbing, also in Poland. The pouch comes from such a family I showed below, i.e. certainly not from the Commonwealth armed forces.

First pouch looks identical to a nylon pouch I have mine is Israeli Revolver ammo pouch. Could it be Israeli Pattern 37? I also have Israeli Pattern 37 M16 Pouches, of this weave and color, in my collection.

I suspect that is the origin of the piece in post #1.

 

It bears a strong resemblance to the two pocket grenade pouches that Israel used in the 1960s-1970s, even down to the multiple snaps to secure the flap in different positions.
