                Here is my Breda 30. Actually Regia Marina issued . I have the carrying valise and spare stripper clip pouch. Slightly different to the magazine .

                    I don't think that the pouch is for the Breda.
                    I rather believe it is for the 7.9mm fucile mitragliatore mod.37 which was actually a ex Yugoslavian light mg. mod.37.jpg

                      It is engraved Regia Marina. But I don’t have it in my possession just now but I’ll try to get a photo.

                        I’ve seen this pouch used in other photographs mainly used by Bersaglieri motorcyclists.

                          Hm... interesting.
                          However, I am pretty sure the Breda charger won't fit in that pouch.
                          The stripper clips might fit but was this pouch indeed built for the Breda stripper clips?
                          I have some doubts. The Breda stripper clips are rectangular, whilst the pouch is of a conical shape?
                          IMO it makes no sense to build a conical pouch for a rectangular stripper clip.

                          My opinion is that the pouch is for the charger of the ex-Yugo mod.37 LMG.
                          On some rare occasions it might have been used for other clips or chargers.

                          Any idea where the picture was taken? Balkans?

                            I think the ex Yugoslav lmg M37 is a forunner of the Bren gun ?...also i found these Oil cans advertized as Breda 30 lmg oilcans on the internet !?
