Any one else, having one of these? Anyone know the value?
Came to Norway during ww2, probably with an norwegian SOE agent.

If you decide on a value, and want to sell, would like to buy it.

Can not see the UD stamp....Rusco made same for Thompson, without UD stamp. (4-magz) But 500 Euro with magz are cheap, only mags here for that price. Nice pouch.

Id love to know more, if you know more about these pouches. I have seen one or two of them, however not with the UD marking. I would venture to say the UD marking was added later, not by RUSCO. Do you have more details.

In my mind, this pouch would predate a UD42 and therefore originally been for commercial Thomson use, but would love more details if you have firm evidence

You can find these pouches in France and Belgium and i am pretty sure they were dropped with the UD's. Like Ron, i do also think that the UD marking was been added later on

Now i will also have to check if a 20 round Thompson magazine will fit in these pouches , i think not. My mag pouch is lying well stored in a crate. Can you check this Larryhimer ?

 

By the way, i got a brand new UD42 today, it was found in Belgium
