    Rene,
    quite a few of the Thompson pouches went to the U.S. via a Lend lease deal, there were two different versions made of the same item, and were locally produce by company's in Australia, its appears from my research that all Aussie made Tommy gun pouches went to the U.S.M.C.



    2nd pattern U.S. Govt Contract model with longer flaps and Blackened LIFT the DOT fasteners.1st pattern U.S. Govt contract model with Blackened Durable DOT fasteners and shorter pocket flaps (Repro by Me)

    Again these were not that well made when compared to U.S. produce web gear of the period, these pouches were very crudely stitched together and made entirely of canvas. All of the Unitied Carr Fasteners were of the Australia pattern and manufacture.

    Hi Rene,
    here's a few more pictures, as the markings some appear to have none some the U.S. property mark plus date and markings name in that distinctive purple shade of ink.


    1st pattern again, I think this is basically the same as the Aussie issue model.


    Rear of said 1st pattern


    2nd pattern (these also fit the longer Reising Model 50 magazines)


    Again an issued pouch in USMC usage.

    As to my reproduction pouch, this was made as a special project for a European based WW2 museum who wanted a "Brand New" as issued example for a USMC related exhibition. I've patterns for both models of pouch but I've only ever made the 1st pattern model, to date. They also ask me to make them a "Brand New" issue UDM 42 ammo pouch, as again these are quite rare and are often well used and tatty when found.
