Most likely 'Militaire Luchtvaart KNIL', the Military Airforce branch of the Dutch East Indies Army. dj probably refers to the location, unknown to me. 147 being the inventory number of the pistol.

The holsters are just about impossible to find. And quite expensive as a result. They also came with a separate magazine/tool pouch.

Wow! The seller said pistol has an old crappy holster that he would try to find it before I picked up gun next week. I’m praying now that he finds it and correct type 🤞

Even if its a crappy commercial holster, its nice to have. I've only owned one dutch pistol, that I sold. I like them, very nice catch!

Dutch Lugers are not abundantly available, and accessories even less so. I was fortunate to acquire mine quite a number of years ago and have not seen many available since then.

Took me 10 years to find the pistol, 15 to find the holster and 20 to find the mag pouch.
