Appears to be for 30 round magazines for the MP 28II or MP with similar magazine configuration. A similar pouch is shown in this image from the Stroop Report, by I am unaware of the equipment markings for those SD units. It is simply a commercial pouch without that info.

I share Joe’s opinion, while pointing out that some features of the pouch posted differ from those of the MP28 pouch. Possibly a pre-1933 pouch or an early postwar West German police issue. I may suspect even a non-German clone.

Sure, looks simular to the MP28 pouch, thats why I thought could be police related.
Strange IMO is the lack of belt loops.

Order police issued 20 round magazines and the closure system was a upward strap and stud with both belt loops and d-rings for straps. The RSHA used commercial holsters for their pistols, so I would presume they used commercial 3-mag leather pouches for their 32 round (correction of above error) magazines for the MP28 and MP41. Without the belt loops that appear to be used in the photo I added, I doubt these are WWII RSHA issue. The Dutch used a similar pouch configuration for their 32 round MP28 II magazines.
