Hi Chaps,
Im a bit confused over a bread bag I picked up today with some other bits.
After doing some research, the nearest I could find to this was a Thompson SMG drum round bag.
Does this bag look familiar to anyone or am I thinking too deep?
It has a Kings crown brass button fastening (with rear ring so could have been put on later) but no marks inside.
I'm not even sure its British now.
Can anyone help?
Many thanks, Neil.

Are there any internal pockets. First thought was it looked more like a civilian Gasmask bag, but then again I'm not even sure it's military,

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, it has internal pockets sewn in half (if that makes sense).
It also has a rear pocket the size of the whole bag.
The way its sewn looks very military and the strap has solid brass buckles and dont look commercial.
Neil.

Ok, so, presumably private purchase officers gear.
Not unusual at all.
I always run these things by the experts (you guys) in case Ive missed the obvious, in order to broaden my knowledge and appreciate your thoughts and experience.
