An original 1937 pattern webbing officers' valise bag clearly dated 1942 and complete with a carrying strap.
This pattern of satchel was introduced in 1938 as part of the officers web equipment which was worn throughout the Second World War. It is made from the standard webbing material and features twig buckles to the rear which attach to the cross straps when the bag is worn on the webbing set. There is also a carry handle to the rear. The front of the bag fastens with a single tab and twig buckle.
Inside the bag the original divider is still present. There are two small pockets to the interior which fasten with brass pop studs. The maker's name of 'M.E.C.o is present which denotes Mills Equipment Company. The 1942 is also present as is the War Department broad arrow marking. It has some red paint stains within one of the pockets but apart from that there is no damage. All in all a great ww2 item. Not bad for 82 years old.
