1945-dated British-made Map Case. Made by C.P. Ltd, as is the special mapcase strap (with the British-made hooks).

With US-made one for comparison.

Maker is M.W. & S. Ltd, dated 1944.

First one is a Finnigans 1945 cover (the green web belt hook piece appears to have been a replacement as I'm sure it's a US-made piece), with US-made 1941 Baker-Lockwood cover as comparison.

Second is is a US-AC cover, dated 194?, in distinctly green canvas with various GI numbers on it (the belt hook piece (although the original British-made one here) has been resewn by the QMC).

I am not sure what the begining of this thread was about is it "what was manufactured by the British for the U.S. Military in WW2" in the way of Webbing ??????

Re the Carlisle Pouch from Blunderbus - I have one dated 1945 (Finnigans mfg). Am I right in assuming that theoretically these could be issued with OD7 kit, or was there a spate of Webbing BS Post War, banishing the Tan kit to the netherworlds?
