Unknown Rucksack

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I hope this all finds you safe and healthy. I picked up a small WW2 uniform group and this pack was thrown in with the deal. At first I thought it was a boy scout pack, but it has no markings to indicate that. It's made from a very stiff khaki canvas. I just want to make sure this is not some that I would regret letting go later. Id love to hear your opinions.

Thanks

Vic

Hello, im no expert in this field ,but looks of German manufacturing

Possibly WW2? Looks close to Afrika corps related.

Just a guess.

Thanks for the replies. I dont know if its german or not. It came with a group of items that belonged to a soldier in the army medical department. I was able to get some info on him. He was inducted in 1945 and I don't think he made it overseas. I believe the markings on the bag are pattern stamps for the different parts of the bag. I have his serial number and it doesn't match.

Looks very similar to a German m31 rucksack


Looking for a Vietnamese made 267th Cable Construction "Snakemen" patch and DI & Theatre Made Hand Guided Patches from ODS to Present Day as well as embroidered boonies/ uniforms

I did notice the similarities in shape, there were just minor differences in the materials that the Germans used.

I would lean toward an Eastern European country.
