    I found this stuffed away with some of my Dad's stuff. The rounds were in it. All it has on it is 'EK 1943. Is it a ammo pouch? I'm pretty sure it's American.

    Any fitments on it to secure it to anything?

    To be honest it reminds me of a bicycle tyre repair kit pouch.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No Ade.No belt loop or clip type of deal. It's pretty thick and solid to just be for a bicycle repair kit.

    I know this is kind of late Ade,but I sorta just found out what this is. Boyt made these in 1943 as a tool pouch,( with slots for belt) similar to what you stated. Sears made exactly what I have (minus slots) as a bullet/cartridge pouch 1943. But...EK?

    I was looking up some leather pouches and hand bags for my wife's cwp and came across these pouches on ebay. I'm sure a lot of em had to be made.I guess one can put whatever one wants to in them as long as it fits.

    Thanks...I didn't know what they were. The head stamp reads R M on top and B 45 on the bottom. Any clue to cal. and what they were used in? Ya got my curiosity. If you know, it would save me from looking it up. If you don't,I'll have to put these two fingers to work.

    Sorry, I never found cases marked R.M. before. The fact that they are dated 45 may lead to think they are postwar prductions for sport/hunting. They are not common in Italy
