There are still bargains on eBay. Got this through the post this morning.

1st pattern second model corpsman bag in very good condition.

Was listed as a “USN Navy Style REDCROSS Canvas Messenger Bag”
With a description that included “Not sure on the maker but this is one wicked mod/indie bag”

Nearly fell off my chair when I saw it especially with the price. Got it with the P&P for £16($32). The damaged one I already had cost me £25 ($50)

Only question is how long were these produced?

Thanks for that craig.

It was your referance that I checked before I bid on it just to confirm it was what I thought it was.

Do we know the length of time these were in service?

These seem to enter service in the 1920's and are replaced gradually about mid-war (WW2) though many remained in service through the war.
