    Another I found this afternoon- double named 1941 example.
    Maybe issued during training?

    Nice pouch René! Notice how the closure strap on that Canadian pouch is 3/4" wide, this was changed to 1" on all Canadian basic and utility pouches in 1941.

    Excellent work mate! Thanks for sharing. I feel any item, no matter how small, that can be traced back to a veteran is a fascinating one! Cheers
    Best regards,
