WWII Canvas case 16 x 14.5 x 1.4 inch belonging to a pilot while in VMF-321. The size and configuration suggested at first a map case or something along those lines of thought. Unique enough I guess, so thought I would post and see if anyone else had any ideas? regards...pat

Other side. There may have been some printed lettering on one side, but now it is near completely faded...

This pilot came over to the PTO on the Nassau visiting Samoa, Espiritu Santo, Vella Lavella, and Torokino (on Bougainville). Then on to Sydney, Australia to complete the 1st tour. March 1944, back to Bougainville, then Green Island, Kwajalein (CVU-98), Guam, and withdrew from combat inDec 1944. Where this was theatre, or rigger made, can only be speculated on. But given this pilots accounts, it may have been on Bougainville or Green Island.
