Default Pouch to ID

I haven't bought any field gear in a long time, but I went to an estate sale and found a few things cheap. The first item up is a leather pouch. I'm not sure what its for so any help if welcome. 1938 dated with waa .jim

Glen, Here are some more pictures. I hope they help. The whole strap setup appears to be over engineered IMHO. Why a simple closure wasn't used is beyond me. Jim

Hi Jim.

I have the same pouch - also made in 1938 by the company Carl Heinichen in Dresden - later they used the code: joa

I do not know what it has been used for, but I would like to know too maybe phone equipment???

Sadly someone killed the WaA bird

You have a nice one too. Interesting that no one has identified it yet. Jim

Interesting thread gents. A quick google of the maker didn't find what this pouch is for but it did throw up that this pouch was still being made in 1941

https://www.39-45.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=47439

Lets hope someone comes forward with answer.

The pouch doesn't appear to be rare, which makes it hard to understand why no one can ID it. Some pretty rare, almost one of a kind pieces have been identified on the WAF over the years. I hope the experts can solve the mystery surrounding this one. Jim
