Instead of a large flap extending from the rear of the pocket, this pattern has only a short flap extending from the front of the pocket. This flap is closed by a strap rivetted to the rear of the pocket. Like the Mk.I is has a brass "dee" on the rear to take the front hook of the greatcoat carrier. It is designed to take three chargers placed in the pocket in sandwich fashion, the centre charger having the bullets pointing up.
