I forgot to post these ammunition carriers in my last post.
I am not sure if these are 51 Pattern ammunition carriers or postwar production 37 Pattern ammunition carriers.
Manufacturer DOM A CO., stamped 1951.
So, are they 51 Pattern or post war production 37 Pattern? I am leaning to 37 Patten as 51 Pattern did not have brass hardware as these carrier do nor was it produced in khaki colour (as far as I know).
A collector I know informed me that 37 Pattern was produced up to the 1980's, something else I didn't know.
I was under the impression that 37 Pattern was not manufactured in Canada after the war , and the army disposed of most of their 37 Pattern equipments under the believe they had enough equipments left over for future use.
This resulting in the shortage caused by the start of the Korean War.
