    Unknown British Pouch

    ok folks, picked this pouch up my local surplus store, £1.99.

    Same material as the S6 respirator pouch, no NSN numbers, but a series of numbers are written on rear.

    What you think?

    It looks to me like a WW1 British Ammo Pouch, but I could be wrong!

    Dont think its ww1, those numbers on the rear are most likely the chap who it was issued to? As to its use im not too sure, the loop at the top looks as though its intended for a belt?

    I think it's probably a specialist pouch of some sort. I know there are all sorts of different issue pouches for communications equipment, night fighting gear, engineer tools etc., hell, there's probably an issue belt mounted knife set for the combat caterer. Without an NSN to refer to it will be hard to find out. The marked number on the rear may even be the serial number of the piece of equipment it was meant to carry.

    Kammo-man is right - how do you type under all that stuff!?

    Radio pouch ? The single snap with elastic cord is common fastening these days but this pouch could be very early special use type.

    Also slanted which radios tend to have all the dials and that on one side.

    Thinking on , this could be part of the 1972 special forces rubberised test webbing kit.
