    Default Webbing pouches, ID needed

    Below are pictures of a couple of items that I have never seen before. could you ID these and tell me if it's an as-common-as-muck item or rare as rocking horse poo? Right, without further ado:

    ONE


    plastic buckle


    rear of the pouch above


    The inside of the same pouch


    TWO

    Bandolier with an odd closure


    THREE




    Four




    Five



    Cheers!

    First one is a C7 ammo pouch for the 82 pattern Canadian webbing.
    Not sure on the second or third
    Fourth seems to be 82 pattern webbing for Sterling SMG mags, before it was taken out of service a few years later.

    Hi,
    item 2 is a UK .303, 50 round / 5-clip bandoleer. They were manufactured with button, press-stud or these wire hook fasteners.
    item 3 looks to be a US M1923 M1 Garand cartridge belt, normally 2 of these 5-pocket belts worn on belt kit.
    item 4 is possibly a variant of a UK 1937 Pattern mag pouch for a Browning/ Colt type automatic pistol, but I cant find pics of this particular type anywhere.

    hope that's a help.

    Great help. As for number four, I cant find any pictures either... Do you think there would be interest in any of the above by a collector?

    And on that note, I came across this:
    http://www.karkeeweb.com/patterns/of...h_front_2.html

    ""This was for revolver ammunition and took the form of the Patt. ’19 W.E. design. The belt hooks were sandwiched between the folded, two layers of webbing, the ****gs protruding directly through the weave of the material. In 1932, A.M.O. A.44 authorised a change, to be incorporated into existing Pouches by modification, with new production being of the revised form. A guard *****, 1-inch wide, in thin webbing, was to be stitched to the forward edge and sides of the pouch. This was to obviate the loss of loose rounds, when the flap was open. The example shown here is maker marked M.E. Co. and date 1939. From the Karkee Web Collection.""

    do you think anyone would be interested in that at all? Or in a 44' Machete/Golok for that matter?

    Like simple jumper said the first pouch is a 82 pattern webbing C7 magazine pouch, or possible a C1 magazine pouch. 4 is a Canadian 82 pattern webbing Sten magazine pouch, without a doubt.


    Not sure how much interest there is in Canadian 82 pattern webbing, but I`m sure some people do collect it. 82 pattern webbing is pretty common(sten pouch would be less common) in surplus stores across Canada.

    Number 3 is half of a US M1923 Dismounted riflemans cartridge belt and its unserviceable as the adjustment buckle at the rear is missing.
