Guys, Does anyone know what country these ammo pouches are from?
No markings and unsure of their origins.
Does anyone know?
Thank you, Neil.

Proportions and style of tabs suggests slightly French. Home made or ex colonial copies ?. Canvas backing is unusual.

Similar thoughts to my own maquis but I am totally miffed by them.
They appear inter war in age but I haven’t had any with canvas backing.
If they are personally made, they did a great job as the leather is extremely thick.
The plated button ‘nipples’ look French/ German.

There were French Colonial troops in Europe in both world wars, Senegalese, Morocco etc.
