World War 2 British and Commonwealth MKI tanker holster complete with suspension strap and leg strap

This special holster pattern was introduced with the British Pattern 37 Equipment as the " Pistol Case R.A.C. / RTC ", i.e. for use by Royal Armoured Corps personnel, also later adapted by airborne troops. It has six cartridge loops and external cleaning rod slot. Designed to accommodate the .38 caliber revolvers usually Endfield No2 or Webley MkIV . it hung well below the waistbelt and was kept snug to the leg by the thigh strap; this configuration was intended to minimize interference in going through armoured vehicle hatches. Not a particularly successful or popular design, it was replaced by the shortened and simplified pattern. Most of the earlier pattern had straps cut to the simplified configuration, with the result that uncut original example is now scarce.

This holster is Canadian Issue in very good issued condition, it shows light service wear and some soiling, but no damage. Issue stamps still visible .

Please do note the last picture is for demonstration purpose only --- The pistol, lanyard, cleaning rod and cartridges are NOT INCLUDED in the sale and the holster in the last pic is NOT the actual one for sale

I will however include free nationwide courier and 6 spent .38SW cases if buy now is used .
