    They are a leather alternative to the webbing one, and the belt is the most commonly encountered item of the set these days. They will work, but it probably isn't what you are looking for.
    Pattern 1939 Leather Infantry Equipment

    This page shows the normal 'Enfield' holsters Pattern 1937 Web Equipment Mills had been making a very similar case as part of their commercial webbing sets in the '20s and '30s, some of which went to the RAF and some to the Canadians. Rod pipe was on the outside.

    Now I am intrigued. I picked up a 1931 Enfield No.2 (no import mark, no civilian proofing marks, no sold out of service marks - maybe someone "accidently" brought it home to the US?), and it came with a leather "Sam Brown"-type holster. The revolver is a perfect fit in the holster. There are no maker or inspection marks whatsoever on the holster, so I have no clue. Just thought I'd share.

    Perhaps the leather holster is a private purchase by an officer? Looks very nice.

    I have a copy of a pamphlet from 1916 written by Captain Charles Tracy and titled Revolver Shooting in War, A Practical Handbook. In it he recommends to officers to make a private purchase of a cowboy style leather holster to carry the Webley in combat.

    Looks like a WW1 issue type. Yes, could be private purchase too...

    Stamps and Skennertonicon book .380 Enfield page 109 has a leather holster like that displayed. As it is the Sam Brown type pattern.

    Officers would have to acquire a suitable holster for their Sam Browne and service dress. This would be purchased from the outfitter/tailor.

    Didn't officers in the Britishicon colonial Indian army have leather holsters?
