Garand enbloc pouches for web belt?

What I thought would be simple to find is apparently not. I wanted to find enbloc pouches for a web belt but I am only finding molle gear and bandoliers.

In WWII did they only use bandoliers?

M1923 cartridge belt. Five pouches on each side of the buckle.

They were in use up through Korea.

I think there is a Viet Nam era M1 carbine/rifle, 2 mag/clip pouch that attached to a web belt with Alice clips.

And Col Cooper had a story about a candidate for Vallaha armed with a Garand that took out 18 with one clip in the rifle, and two more in a belt pouch
