Picked this up recently and can't seem to find much info on them. This was made by Johansen but I can't quite make out if the date is '44 or '45 since it is in the seam. Is there any photographic evidence of these being used in WW2?

I believe these came out in 45 post war. I may be wrong but, sure they did not see action in ww2

I seem to remember photographic evidence of their use in Varsity, but cannot locate the photograph at this time. As costa mentioned, very late war and most are dated 45 and beyond up until 1950-51. Yours with the lighter straps stands a chance to be on the earlier side but cannot see a date on there.
