Description

*The shade of this bag may be different from picture shown*

This is a fantastic general purpose single compartment Shoulder bag. The bag itself is a 1937 Pattern British shoulder bag with an attached British cotton shoulder strap. These bags were possibly sent to the Dutch for their own personal use. Although they've seen a fair bit of action, they still have a lot of kick left in them.

A great candidate for collectable surplus, but more likely to work best for people as a student or messenger bag. It's sturdy canvas material can take a bashing and would make for a good, hard wearing tool bag. As well as being tough, it's also loaded with style and authentic military feel, that favours students and reenactors.

Features:

  • 1937 Pattern vintage design
  • Sturdy cotton canvas
  • Attached British shoulder strap
  • Stylish military look

Excellent for Pannier Conversion

Converted a pair into a set of throw-over motorcycle panniers (I sit on the strap to secure in place). A bit of needlework will get you a tough set of retro luggage.

My opinion

exactly matches it's description a tough bag 👍 although I wouldn't recommend using it as a shoulder bag as it is uncomfortable, It lacks two L straps to basically turn it into a bag lol, but you'll probably find L straps on trade me somewhere, from what I know about these bags these are the Big pattern 37 bags NOT THE TYPICAL SMALLER BAGS WORN INTO COMBAT. I believe these were carried around when in marching order and I also believe these bags were made/ first used in 1908 part of the 08 pattern used during WW1 and carried on well into the 50s as I'm aware. my bag has a heap of names on the bag flap, some were probably previous soldiers and some were probably previous owners of the bag (post war use). I'm slowly starting up a WW2 impression of a 2nd NZEF soldier and will be using this for that.

British back pack

These are the bigger back pack from the 08 and 37 british ww1 and ww2 webbing. They are relatively large. The first one I brought was marked 09 which was a pleasant surprise.
