Pouch For 1937 Lance Grenade Launcher, 50mm, French
Keith Gilbert (Seattle, WA) 2/7/2017 2:45 AM
You are mistaken about your description, this pouch system was designed and issued in Viet Nam to VC troops for the 1937 Lance Grenade Launcher and rounds. I know, I brought one back from over there with several chemical fused shells…the design is to make the whole thing convenient for use by a bicycle rider/soldier. Probably much rarer than you realize…I no longer have the little mortar but it was very clever…two man crew. You can Google for pictures of the 'grenade launcher/knee mortar' but I didn't find any of the chemical fused shells…they worked good but were dangerous because a true safety wasn't possible.
