I know this is a bit strange but has anyone heard of military made golf club bags, ie for officers?
I have what appears to be a set of golf clubs (mostly hickory wood) and the bag seems to be made with p37 or p58 webbing buckles.
I think it’s amusing but is it military related.
I can’t see these made like this for civilians.

Original clubs, bags, accoutrements are probably highly sought after, especially if they were anywhere near famous battles, incidents. I've seen several ww2 officers battledress blouses turn up, to named officers, with leather golfing buttons, on E-bay, for serious money. If you can put a name to the clubs, and they have a ww2 connection, worth further research. The clubs may be older than the bag !

Maquis,
Thanks for the reply.
As you’ve replied to two of my posts, you’ll understand my frustration that I seem to acquire the most unusual items, making it so difficult to research.
I think one or two clubs have a name on so will have a look at them later in the workshop.
