    It's ok, I don't need a link It was singing "1914 pattern" at me in the original photo... I just wanted to be sure

    It's definitely a 1914 Haversack with it's rear tabs and bottom buckles removed (third type as you say). It looks like it still has it's original 1914 Pattern side buckles though, which is very rare (these are tongued buckles right?). A huge number of these packs were converted (even during WW1) to 1908 Pattern by replacing the side and bottom buckles (these are often called 1908/14 Hybrid or Convertible or some such thing... but they're not).

    That's a really nice find! If you added it to a 1914 Pattern set in 'marching order' it would look fantastic

    Hi Rob, yes they are tounged type, I missied this originally, due to the way the shoulder strap was hiding them.

    Looks more like Percy Cecil Mold to me.

    In any case, 343 Brigade, RFA (TF) was the renamed 2/4th Welsh Brigade RFA (TF). This was part of the 68th (2nd Welsh) Division, a home service, 2nd Line Territorial, division formed as a duplicate of the pre-war Welsh Division (renamed 53rd Division).

    Thanks again

    Sunday 6th May, a few items of interest, a steel helmet, a USAF fire fighters helmet, a couple of aeronautical books on airframes, a RAF commerative plate and three prints of WW1 aircraft, with one having attached to the rear a piece of aircraft fabric, with an attached note (see photo).
    Monday went to a local carshow/autojumble, nothing military, but rain put an end to it early unfortunately.

    Sunday 13th May, no finds yesterday, today turned up a SRD jug, a Operation Granby t-shirt, tankers mike and head phones and an interesting 1920's map of Cawnpore, India. Does anybody know what the letters in the last photo might stand for ? and the "Gloves On" & "Gloves Off" in the key (second photo ?).

    Nothing found today, but yesterday (19th May) a few finds, a book of petrol coupons, an Air Ministry G clamp and a photo, which appears to be just post war, by the medal ribbons being worn.
    Also, though not military, I picked up a very nice 1800/1810 wine decanter, 200 hundred years old and it ends up at a carboot !
