Can anybody ID this webbing bag for me?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up this piece of webbing. It has a number of clasps on it and a long pocket on one side with a padded piece on the other. It has a broad arrow mark and is dated 1942. I'm interested to know what piece of equipment or weapon it would be used for?

Any buckles on the outside that may have had straps on? Small pouch on the rear may be too??

I have a few similar for sten mags and mortar rounds. Mine appearance drop bags, don't know if this fits in with yours. Best guy to know is Frank at Pegasus Drive, webbing maestro! He has every conceivable piece in his collection and a bit more!!! Don't know if he's on here or not but I know some of the guys will know him, he makes webbing and canvases.

Could it be an Indian or Australian version of the Bren cover with seperate muzzle cover ?, the photo is of an early British version I have , similar ?

It's a Bren cover with separate muzzle cover. It's Canadian manufactured (Note WD arrow inside the C mark). Looks to be in unused condition -Nice.

The cover is infinitely preferable to lugging about the Bren transport chest!!:-):-)

Make sure the dial site fits into the pocket next to the small pouch , then adjust muzzle cover to fit
