I've got these ammo pouches 1956 ammo pouches and the straps have been removed and was told that this is common in Vietnam so the troops didn't have to wear the suspenders ans the straps didn't get in the way??????

I've bought/ sold hundreds of these, and I'd say about half of them had missing vertical straps. They were fairly un-necessary, so it's not surprising a lot of guys cut them off.

Ok thanks for clearing that up they do look a well used pair. 1st pair in the uk that I've seen this done on. 👍

Lots of evidence to support that these straps were cut off, sometimes but less common the grenade straps are also cut off
