So I am all ready to kit up for submission...and man I cant figure out how to mount the shoulder mp40 pouch. Does it attach to the pauldron? Shoulder strap? Strap from shoulder bridge to shoulder bell? Thanks!
 
Edit: I should have mentioned...going without a pack to start.

It attaches to the backpack shoulder strap when a pack is worn. 

As you don't need a pack for basic submission but the CRL still requests people to have the shoulder pouch, there are different ways how it can be done. Some people use magnets glued to the inside of the chest, I personally had a strap velcroed to the inside of my backplate and then that came over my shoulder and attached to the pouch with buttons.

Here you go, just a pic of the strap, you can imagine how the rest works, pretty simple, just some buttons on the pouch and velcro tape on the inside of the shoulder parts of the backplate.

Cheers mate

I have a strap that loops around the strap that connects the shoulder bell to the white shoulder webbing. The the pouch is held in place on the front of my chest plate with magnets. Will get a pic when I have a chance

Yep. Didn't really matter to me as I was already working on my pack when my TD was approved and I've always been trooping with my pack since. 

Actually I have just used this way of attaching it for my basic submission. There are actually no troopers without pack wearing a shoulderpouch on screen. The packless troopers are also pouchless (shoulderpouch).

Thanks. Yes I understand the black pauldron version screen-used options (I think)...but wont be taking this one past a basic approval. I already owned the pauldron n pouch (who knows why lol) and putting them to use.

Thank you. So magnets limit the dangle. Yes Id love to see the placement of those magnets on the pouch and the chest plate Im guessing

So here is what I do. I made up this nifty little strap them holds the angle and the height of the pouch from my shoulder.  I have a block of wood in each for shape and the right one has a magnet inset into the wood at the bottom

The loop at the top goes through my shoulder bell strap as it clicks through to the armour.

Then the magnet that is at the bottom of the pouch attaches to the magent on my chest armour

Thank you. I attempted magnets and it wouldnt hold well for some reason. I am going to try again though. For the purpose of pics I made a loop similar to yours and used some velcro for now. Here is the result.

Nice work, I like the look you got going there. 

For the magnet, I found epoxy did the trick for me, I just roughed up the inside of area of my chestplate before using the glue for a better bond.
