Original 1940 Dated Indian Made MKI Universal Pouch
An original WW2 Indian made British Army 1937 Pattern MK1 universal pouch in good condition.
This rare pouch is of the earliest design which was superseded by the Mk2 and Mk3 pouches respectively throughout the Second World War. The MK1 pouch features a far higher belt hanger which makes the pouch sit lower on the belt.
The pouch features typical Indian brass fittings and has the three balisite loops inside the flap which were a feature on the MK1 pouch. The manufacturer's name and the date are stamped to the front of the pouch with the date appearing to read 1940.
The overall condition of the pouch is good and it displays well. There are some signs of age and wear as are to be expected.
A nice original early piece of Indian made webbing from the Second World War.
