I don't own this but it's currently in my possession. I don't know too much about it but apparently it's a very rare WWII demolition bag?? Can anybody confirm and tell more about it's contents ect.?

Hi eaglerunner,

 

Not certain but I think this pack may be seen in the wartime Explosives & Demolitions manual ' FM5-25 ', you would need to make sure it's a WWII copy and not a post war up-dated copy. 

 

cheers lewis

I’m guessing those demolition bags were so rare because they were meant to explode with the contents. Nice piece for sure! Didn’t realize they were marked with a maker and date on them.

So I've discovered that it's a first pattern demolition bag (backpack) which held 20 x 1/2lb blocks of TNT along with fuses, tools and detonators. Apparently it was phased out by 1944.
