Hello all,

 does anyone recognize this canvas Military style bag, there are no markings on it anywhere. The bag is made to be carried on your back.

 

Thanks, Andy

Not sure what it would be used for but Judging by the colors and buckels it looks like a WW2 USMC Depot made pack

Whatever it is, it's neither well designed nor made. Too many rivets are used in place of sewing. These are guaranteed to pull out or loose if stressed.

Don't know but it looks like it could be for a field antenna and other comm gear.

Thanks Gents, I'm going to take this bag to the Red Ball Military show in Gilbert PA. this weekend to sell and maybe find out what it was used for.
