Years ago I saw a 1942 dated 3 cell 30rd .45 magazine pouch. Does anyone have one or a photo. I also have several MTO veterans tell me the wore them in 1943 but now everyone is telling me that ALL of them has faulty memory and that I am mistaken of their exitence. Any help would be appreciated.

I have never seen one. I do not think they ever existed unless in an experimental capacity.

Crapgame: His name is Kelly. Used to be a Lieutenant, pretty good one too-

until someone gave him orders to attack the wrong hill. Wiped out half a company of GI's...

Somebody had to get the blame so he got picked....

Oddball (Laughing): Oh man, I don't like officers...

Crapgame (Laughing): Neither does he, so relax!

The 30-rd. Mag was introduced in the very last part of 1942. From all I can gather, the 30-Rd. Magazine Case (below) was designed specifically for carrying these, but this Bag was replaced by the larger-capacity General Purpose Ammo Bag in '43.

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".
