Please Tell Me What This Thing Is


Recommended Posts

I found this recently and have no clue what it is. It has a small pouch (missing the button) next to an elongated zippered pouch. The zipper has a small crimp in the link, which won't allow me to zip it open (I don't want to tear it).

 

It has a name stenciled on each side of it.

 

I was thinking perhaps this is a personal grooming or sewing kit?

 

 

Thanks - Bryan

Agree with Alec.

 

This one looks to be made out of bandoleer material.

Hi Bryan, it's a money belt, lots of different styles for these, generally sold at the PX during WWII, take a look at this link for a few more.
