Hi, I am tempted to buy a bergen however don't think it is correct despite the main straps being marked up. The leather trim and leather patch to attach straps don't look right to me. Anyone got an opinion?

Hi, you're correct, it is a Bergen, but its not a period British issue commando type Bergen if that's what you mean ?
Appears to be a post war bitsa for the civilian market.....

Cheers
Steve
