Check this item out...

http://cgi.ebay.com/...me=STRK:MEBI:IT

Seller claims it "may" be a "pre-war European pouch". I have never read about this anywhere, anyone else seen one before?

I'm done bidding - so bid like crazy! laugh.gif

That's what happens when people take Kelley's Heroes for historical gospel.

If I recall this is for the MP40,early war. You can find these for about $25 bucks or less here and there.

All these years, I never knew what those pouches were for. I'd probably known since I was about 12 they weren't US WW2, though...
