Marking on USMC sea bag

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what the 5 inside the white circle means on this 4th MarDiv sea bag?

Notice he has it on the front and bottom. Having been in the military, I immediately thought of an enterprising Marine who put an easy to see ID on his bag so he can find it quick. Get a mental image of 200 identical looking duffel bags stacked on a dock and you'll know what I mean. Kinda like a rack number.

Interesting idea, but I've seen it on footlockers and other web gear before and with a different colored circle.
