All pouches secured by flaps with toggles. On the rear of the set is a crude triangle with 2 Iraqi symbols painted in white on it. This triangle is the mark of the Republican Guard.
This Iraqi chest pouch once held ammunition for a member of the elite Republican Guard. Heavily rust-stained from the magazines it once held, it was picked up during the liberation of Kuwait.
