    It's most likely for a sight from either an Artillery piece or an armoured vehicle.

    I have the 75mm gunsight for a Churchill/Cromwell tank, and it’s 44cm long in all, so far too large. I’ve also got a 6-Pounder anti-tank gunsight, and that’s a lot shorter, but at 34cm is still too long for this pouch.

    Is it possible this pouch could have been used for storing rolled maps in a field headquarters? That would explain the lack of buckles or belt loops.
