    US type Jungle 1st Aid Pouch and 37 Pattern Waterbottle Cradle.

    Apologies as cannot post up pics but have just dug up a couple of items whilst having a move around and from memory when bough was told they were Dutch issue?

    US WW2/Vietnam type Green Jungle 1st Aid Pouch-looks similar to a US one,slightly bigger possibly and material looks to be a sort of stiffened canvas. No markings I can see but has 08.0471 ink stamped to outer front flap. Rear has an M10 wire belt hook and under this a belt loop with metal eyelets to which are attached a pair of brass 37 pattern C hooks.

    37 Pattern cradle waterbottle carrier,khaki webbing with 3 brass buckles either side to attach to straps but the closure has a leather tab rivetted to the webbing that closes with a brass sam browne type stud. Like the above item,no markings,stamps etc.

    Many Thanks

    I can take some with my phone and email.

    Also found 2 other items that came with the other 2,a sling of some sorts and a large leather Ammo pouch,looks like a converted British WW2 one.

    Thanks

    The Dutch army did indeed use Basic Pouches, both original WW2 reissued and slightly different Dutch made ones, for a long time after WW2. Does yours have a pointed flap or a straight one?

    British p37 waterbottle carriers have also been used, but way shorter, quickly overtaken by the US model. I've recently found an Indian made jungle green p37 carrier that came from an old Dutch stock.
