It is the standard British army holster for their Gen 4 Glock 17s. In a rare case of a modular bit of kit being acquired, they actually use it modularly. The holster itself can fit onto the thigh rig seen here, a regular belt loop, or a MOLLE adapter plate to fit it to the VIRTUS webbing or vest.

Actually, I just noticed that is a slightly different holster to that one. The one in that image is their level 2 holster, rather than their level 3 one. This image is from the public "unveiling" of the British Army's new pistols/holsters, but I think these level 2 ones might just be stand ins as in any images of them being used they are the level 3 ones (here, here, here and here).

I just found out that Black Bart is buried in a cemetery just a few miles away from where I live.
