Picked up a Squad Pouch from What Price Glory. Where on the 1910 pistol belt do I put at? Trying to be correct. On the right side behind the Holster, further back. On the left side before or after the Canteen?

My understanding is that it was designed to be carried on the M1910 haversack under the meat can pouch, this was in place of an entrenching tool. Photos of them being used are scarce, from memory there are one or two photos of them being carried on a belt. I would think in the trenches it would have been carried wherever it best served a purpose, it might also depend on what small articles were being carried in it at the time, i,e foot powder, housewife etc.
