Default Latest addition..... MP40 pouch.

Greetings all....

Thought I'd show off my lasted acquisition. Just got this off the Estand. Was informed it came from the daughter of the former owner. Who happened to be at one time in the French Resistance. He was also offered his MP40 but couldn't buy it due to the local laws.

I know it has seen better days but is still fully functional and can't remember when I last saw a MP38/40 pouch that had the metal tabs on the end of the closure straps. Can anyone shed some light on when these styles were manufactured and if they were specific to any particular manufacturer?

Here are the photos...... Enjoy.

Mark
