    funny thing, when I saw the marking of the other pouch it's written 1942, while the other one is 1943. So I guess it's not an actual pair when he sold it to me

    Yes, they are certainly Canadian and made by Zephyr Loom & Textile.

    Don't worry about the differing dates, as the markings/dates would have all been mixed up when issued. These Canadian pouches also saw heavy use with Australians and New Zealanders during the war.

    There were around 20 different Canadian webbing manufacturers during the war, but the main two contractors with Zephyr Looms & Textiles, Limited (ZL&T LTD) of Guelph, Ontario and Montreal Suspender & Umbrella Manufacturing Company, Limited (MS&U LTD) of Montreal, Quebec. The other firms were much smaller and only produced particular items to supplement the production of the aforementioned firms.

    Yes, GEW made a lot of bayonet frogs during the war. Actually, I'm not sure if they made anything else...
