    Smile Help Identifying This Leather Pouch

    Hi, My wife saw this leather pouch at a local flea market marked up as WWI webbing ? It was cheap so she thought it was worth a go.
    There is no marking whatsoever on the pouch and everyone I ask about it I just get a puzzled look back.
    Is there anyone out there who may have seen one of these at all. I have no idea of what country it could be either.
    Any help is much appreciated

    Are you sure that it is WW1? I think it is Swedisch or from Switzerland post WW1.

    Unfortunately we don't, she came across it a flee market and it was labelled up as WWI webbing.
    If it is Swedish any thoughts on what it may have held ?

    Hi Bill,

    Many thanks for your answer, someone else has also just informed me of what it is.
    Ahhh shame, it's not WWI after all, but at a tenner, it was worth the gamble.
    Again many thanks Bill
