    Looks like early '58 Pattern waterbottle pouch - they had the twist lock closures. Don't know exactly what year they went to the strap and ladder arrangement. The rear should have two 'C' hooks for attachment on the web belt, much like the previous '37/'44 patt equipment.

    Any chance it's an early/prototype L2A2 SUIT pouch?

    Questions, am I reading the back right?

    "MECo. 1966
    8820-99-120-0182"?

    Also, how wide are the loops on the back? Would it have fit on the front straps connecting the yoke to the ammo pouches?

    Found out that it is to carry a spare battery pack for a British Army A13 Radio.

    Probably true mucker but don't forget we were playing with working trials for the bullpup design in the late 1940's !

    So, a radio battery pouch it is. Wanna sell it ? I'm interested Smile
