    It looks like it could be a protective carrying pouch for a gunnery officers or field engineers tape. The type with a crank handle on one side, hence the slot.

    Hi,
    Nice pouch.... got me intrigued.

    How big is it, and is that AI or AM on the back?

    Belt loops look to small for 1939pat Equip.

    Continental Military Heliograph Mirror case, for attachment to cavalry/mule equipment- circa 1900-1930. ???

    cheers, jim.

    As far as I can tell, this is a Dutch Lewis magazine pouch.
