    Wolverine's Unknown Items

    Post by Wolverine on Sun Jan 22, 2017 7:13 pm

    In this thread I will post pictures of various items that have lived in my mystery box for too long now. Any help is appreciated.

    Cotton bandoleer - well made, pockets closed with buttons, strap can be shortened with buttons/button holes:


    Pouch with twill ties - looks to be for a poncho perhaps, twill tapes are typical of some Soviet items, and cloth is very rough and cheap:

    ALICE-type magazine pouches - somewhat roughly made, the pocket closers resemeble those on Greek M1971 magazine pouches.
    Are these Greek?


    Rifle magazine belt - basically similar to an M1937 belt, but with rougher materials and finishing all around.
    The canvas used for the pocket bodies is typical of French equipment from the 1950s-70s, but I have never heard of a French rifle belt.
    Any ideas?

    Pistol belts with Davis buckles - no markings on the buckles, the belts show some use:

    Entrenching tool carrier - the hardward is typical of Indian made WE 37, but the body of the carrier is well made, with leather reinforcement on the inside. This will not fit a British 1939 pattern entrenching tool, but it will fit something like a Swiss tool for example. The canvas reminds me of Belgian WE 37-type webbing.

    Olive green hoods - inside lining is very itchy purple material, one of the hoods as an ink stamp:

    Holster - for a small-framed pistol, looks like it had D-rings on the rear at some point.
