    WWII-era (?) belt with pouches

    Post by Camo_fiend on Wed Apr 14, 2010 12:38 pm

    Okay, this one is puzzling me... I'm not huge into WWII collecting, but in all the things I have come across, I can't remember ever seeing these.
    This came from my great-great aunt's house, whose husband was an Army medic in WWII.

    My camera was dead so I had to snap these with my phone. The belt looks to be a standard-issue belt with buckle, and there are 5 pouches on the belt. The pouches are the dark OD canvas-type material with a slightly darker green trim, and they each have the little poppers on either side to snap them closed. I can find no markings anywhere on the pouches or belt, except for the "38" stamp on the belt, which I am guessing is the size?





    Any ideas what it is?

    The belt looks to be WW2 issue. But I think the pouches are not military.

    I don't know anything about it, other than it was found in a trunk and forwarded to me because my family knows I collect militaria. lol!
