    I shouldn’t think they were hard to find..

    I’ve finally got round to performing a little experiment..

    In a standard German pouch, they simply do not fit.
    In a German example with the dividers removed, they are little better..
    The Soviet type is, naturally, rather wider to accommodate the clips, to provide a total load of 20 rounds per two-pocket pouch.
    Eight loose cartridges can be fitted neatly into the German type, thus giving a total of 24 rounds per three-pocket pouch.

    (I took photographs of each test, but I do not wish to clutter this magnificent thread with an irrelevant diversion).
    Back to the subject in hand..
    Those Wonderful Red Army Women!

    Part souvenir, perhaps to replace a damaged Soviet issue one, preference over load capacity.. There could be any number of reasons. Forgive me if I don’t see it as such a big issue or mystery.
    I shall PM the images for the reason I have stated above..
    All the best,

    Back to the Women!
