Does anyone know why there are stitching holes in the back of some KNIL Navy Holsters, under the Belt Loop. Something has obviously been removed from this area, it appears that it might have been for either a pin punch and loading tool, but the pattern does not suggest either of these tools. A pin punch and loading tool laid on top of this pattern does not fit.
And, if it is indeed for either or both of these tools, or any other tool, why is it on the back, an inconvenient, or non-existent location, as the Belt Loop is riveted on top of the stitching.
Any suggestions?

Hello Jerry,

Found this photo that might provide an answer...

This is from the Dutch book by Martens & DeVries, "Nederlandse Vuurwapens" on page 35 :

Pete, Thank you! Finally, my curiosity is satiated! I could not for the life of me figure out what this was for. My Wife and I have discussed it and nothing really fit. I have to add Ellie thought it was for a belt or shoulder strap and I said no it couldn't be! I have this book but forgot and left it in Yuma AZ when I came to the mountains. Thanks my Friend. Jerry
