A small canvas Officers bag dating from the Second World War in reasonable condition.
I don't believe these bags to have a particular name or pattern but I have come across them before as part of British Army and RAF officers kits. This particular example came in a trunk of British Officers items which has not been opened since the war.
The bag is made from a lightweight khaki canvas and features a lightening zipper which is typical of the period and works as it should. It features two handles to the top and measures at 13 1/2" in length, 9" in height and 4" wide.
The side of the bag features the original owners name 'E.S. Ridley'.
The overall condition is good and it displays well as can be seen in the photographs. There is a small amount of stitching coming away at one end of the bag although this doesn't affect its functionality. There is also a small hole to the bottom.
A nice original guaranteed WW2 item ideal for a re-enactor or collector.
