M7758 - WW11 AMERICAN LEATHER HOLSTER WITH STRAP, NAMED.   £75
A brown leather holster with shoulder strap, open type with over strap & popper, not sure if its an issue item or not as I can see no stamps, but it has been marked in ink front and back with the owners name "Charles Brown" and also to the front places he served, starting with England, then France, Belgium, Holland and finaly Germany.
