Since all my Navy leather collection is now over 100 years old I look it over every once in a while. Today was a rare rainy day here in Colorado, ideal for photography, so here it is. The top rows in all the photos are Type 1, designed to be carried on a shoulder strap together with a stock. Type 2, on the lower rows, were produced late in the war when Navy ground troops were deployed in the desperate fighting in Flanders. They were worn on a belt with no provision for a stock.
You will notice a common thread (pun intended), all Navy leather was sewn with black thread. One of the pouches does have white thread on the back, it's the black sheep of the family.

Hi Harry,
There are 5 rods and 4 tools (unmarked Imperial DWM). Three of the rods and two of the tools were in the holsters when I bought them.
