Default 4-pocket Walther MP Magazine Pouch

Does anyone have any information on the 4-pocket magazine pouch that shows up being worn in many action photos with the Walther MP submachine gun (K and L versions)? It has the same leather closure system as the MP40 pouches and the more common 3-pocket green BGS MP5 magazine pouches. However, I'm not entirely sure about its colors since all the photos are in poorly lit settings and very old and grainy.

The photos from here http://www.gearguide.ru/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1263 which I have attached and are variously attributed to US Delta Force (SFOD-D) Detatchment A, or GSG9 depending on the source discussing it (more information in social media thread here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3238...6526313485945/). There was a comment in that thread about how the pouches could be for a Beretta submachine gun, but that doesn't make a lot of sense since posts on this forum indicate the Beretta was long phased out by 1980, and the pouches meant for it had 3 cells as well: https://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/for...06&postcount=3.

look like shortened Sten mag pouches used by West Berliner Polizei in 50s and 60s. Or at least construction is based on them. Colour is unclear in photos and have not seen one in a collection so far.
