    Identify Finnish leather case. Possibly for Gunners

    Posted this in the Wehrmacht equipment forum as I believe its German made did not get the answers I was looking for so thought I would move it to this forum.
    Trying to identify this leather pouch recently found. Has the SA stamped in the cover but no other marks found anywhere on the case. It appears to be for a weapon but not sure.
    Appears to be field carried by an individual as it has a shoulder sling and belt loops.
    Any help identifying it would be appreciated

    Don´t throw away your fake WB´s! Get in touch with me.
    I collect them for reference purposes for the benefit of the hobby (for the right "fake" price of course).

      I would agree with Hans, but these cases are difficult to identify.

            Now thinking perhaps a medical first aid kit of some kind along the lines of the German cavalry medical aid leather cases?

              I highly doubt that as finns usually had a red cross marking on their medical cases AFAIK.

                Makes sense. Lots of theories but still no finite answer

                  Check up on dutch equipment. There is something about those rivets. At first, I thought the UK, but no. Possibly dutch.
                  May be german war booty, later delivered to Finland.

                    Thank you and sorry for the late reply! Had not thought about captured equipment sent by Germany. Will look into it

                      The case is Finnish army armourer tool case. It contains special tools for maintain Light machine guns (DP and LS26), Maxim Machine gun and some basic tools, hammer, pliers, etc. The case seems to be empty.

                        Sorry for the late reply and Thank you for the information! So the tool case was used for multiple weapons. Interesting
