    Default War time dated P-37 waist belt and patrol pouches

    Morning all I managed to pick up this nice late war dated P-37 waist belt off of Ebay last week to add to my commonwealth field gear for a very reasonable price I am quite happy with it the belt is broad arrow marked and dated to 1943 .
    The one patrol pouch is named to one (J.W. BLINN-F40660 ) I have not had a chance to research the soldiers name yet to see if there is any info out there regarding his service history the belt came with two patrol (ammo) pouches and they all appear to be original and unblancoed .
    The pouches look to match the belt in condition and wear and from the pictures seem to have been with it for some time .
    The seller did not mention any information such as dates and or maker marks on the patrol pouches so I guess it will be a surprise when I get home from working in the North please excuse the size and quality of the photos as they are the sellers thanks for looking .

    That was the highest I have seen Rene Average price I find is $80.00 to 100.00 cdn nutty prices and If I find one abroad the shipping is the deal killer.

    Hi Rene I have been watching a nice war time dated C-broad arrow marked Canadian waist belt,Bren pouches and equipment braces on E-bay for the last week they sold yesterday morning for the staggering price of $256.00 Cdn .
    When you consider the price of these items if you were to buy them separate the braces and the bren pouches do not demand a very high price in the market place it makes the waist belt a very expensive item indeed so IMO if you have a few of these kicking around you are sitting on a little gold mine.
