I got these from one of my favorite shops this week. The bottom looks to be a grenade vest?

The bottom one is a WWI M1918 Grenade Carrier Vest.

The pistol belt ONLY, second from the top, is familiar to me as WW 2. The pouches are not what we had.

I agree with the grenade carrier. Those used to be found new from stock
The top and bottom belts maybe Model1923 Belt, Cartridge, cal. 30, Dismounted.
The middle one is an M36 Pistol Belt mounted with a lot of M56 compass pouch.
I wonder whether a carbine 15 round mag would fit in the compass pouch?

Maybe. 
I'd be more curious if they would hold any of the accessory items such as spare parts or in particular the light gun oil and cleaner cans.   Those don't fit the magazine pouches best I can tell.  I'm not willing to try a force fit!
