    Default U.S. Web Belt and Pouches

    I think the canteen is postwar Canadian issue.

    Zwerge, here is a rather worn U.S. example.

    You can see the snap button and "US" very faintly on the right side of the buckle.
    I don't think American belts have brass fittings.

    Well, at least one of the pouches is U.S. I used to live across the lake from you in Belle Ewart.

    I know Belle Ewart, zwerge !
    Have you attended the Militaria shows around T.O.? ?

    ( The small pouch is US Vietnam era, for compass possibly. )

    The small pouch is a US M-56 F.A. pouch. The canteen cover also looks like a latter model M56 cover, are there any markings on the back? If the canteen is U.S. it will be marked on the bottom. You already know that the other is a U.S. jungle first aid kit.. Cheers
