    Default Is this a British Camouflage Pattern?

    Hi All, Iím not sure which forum would be best to post this question, so will start here.

    The item pictured below belonged to a soldier with the Polish 2nd Corps who fought alongside the 8th Army durng the Italian campaign. It is a pouch that was made from some camouflage fabric that I am trying to identify. Iím posting it here first in case it is a British camo pattern. Thereís a possibility it may even be German, or other.

    It is a course cotton type fabric, but not quite as heavy as canvas. Is anyone here able to identify this origin of this pattern?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Tony

    Thanks PZ. Italian eh? Interesting to know that the Germans would have used an Italian pattern. Only after posting the question here did it occur to me that the German section may have been a better choice as it makes the most sense that fabric from a captured piece of German army garb would have been used. Anyway, many thanks again.

    Cheers,
    Tony
