Title Set of ammunition pouches, model 1911
Nationality German
Period 1937 & 1939
Price £70.00

These are the standard Wehrmacht issue from 1933 on, replacing the 1909 type which carried 60 rounds as opposed to 30 in the later model. In this case, one is a Berlin product, the other being made in Vienna - a regular 'anschluss'! Although they are not strictly a pair, they have obviously been together for some time.

There is a possibility that these started out as Luftwaffe or Orpo pieces, as they would appear to have been dyed black on top of an original brown finish. They would have been worn on either side of the belt buckle and secured in place by the Y-straps.

The leather is in generally good shape, though somewhat worn and slightly scuffed with use and age. The stitchng on the securing straps is a little frail in places. They have aluminium rivets and fittings throughout.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
