    Hi guys.

    Woodpecker, you've got a very nice 1943 dated 37ptn revolver holster, manufactured by the Mills Equipment Co, (identified by the MECo stamp) I would say that this is a "standard issue" 37ptn revolver holster, as opposed to a RAF specific. From the photo's it appears to be woven in the normal pale khaki/sandy brown cotton with no obvious signs of being either woven in RAF blue-grey or having been blancoed this colour.

    Andy, yours is an equally nice 1941 dated holster, manufactured by Martin Wright and sons, (identified by the MW&S stamp on the flap). Also yours DOES have an AM stamp on the flap

    Regarding the AM stamp, in my experience, it is "hit and miss" whether you actually find it on RAF issued web equipment unless it is the specific "RAF 1925ptn" web equipment.

    RAF w/e was generally woven in a blue/grey cotton, but can also be found blancoed RAF blue-grey from the "normal" sandy brown base colour as issued to the army.

    Hope that this is of some help.

    Regards etc
