Sounds like a grenade vest.

You're right.
Went on net, it's an American copy of British bombers vest already used on the front.
Mills bombs fit in it fine but it was never issued before the wars end
Someone commented there are WW 2 pics with soldiers using them for shotgun shells and another stating he uses his for full enblocs

Also 6 rows on top only five on bottom, I can't count.lol.
