Post-WW2 Custom Made Sterling Submachine Gun Magazine Pouch

Code: 10100

Out of Stock

Unusual magazine pouch made of lightweight green cotton canvas, with three magazine inserts for the Sterling submachine gun.

It appears to have been removed from something, possibly a belt. This is likely as the man's name has been written to the reverse, indicating it was not stitched onto a seperate piece of material like a vest.

There are eyelets to the bottom of each magazine cell, suggesting it could have been designed for use in the jungle.

It is unusual in that there is a single flap with twin fasteners, as opposed to individual flaps as the later pouches featured.

Overall an unusual and possibly experimental item designed for the Sterling in the post-war era.
