I was just going through some boxes of web gear, and found this item that I had no idea I had. I was hoping I could get some feedback on this bag. I've looked through my reference material and couldn't find anything on it. Its 40inches long and 12 inches wide, there's a strap on one side, and a draw string through the top. I had never noticed the stamp on the inside of the bag, it appears to say Marker Case, Parachutist Experimental, U.S. 1941. On both sides of the bag are painted the initials E.R.T.C., I hope someone can tell me what this is. Thanks Jon

Still, on of the rare first experimental runs... You don't come across these every day. Nice item.
