    Default Car boot find; US '42 bag

    Bought this bag yesterday, no clue what its for, but again I liked it because there is a name on it. Gives it a bit of a personal touch.
    Tried to find the GI, but without the correct number its difficult.
    The serial number on the bag only has 7 digits, so is missing one or maybe not even a serial number.
    The name is William Koenig, and the number seems to be 0823880.
    Nice piece of Normandie history.

    nice score, maybe a battle bag, or a mussete-sp? , i don't know but I bought a small back pack, it's a little larger, but the guy called it a quick battle pack? I am not an expert, but it did have a holder for a shovel, which I found one, then bought a cover at a army/navy store for $1.50 cent's, it's in great shape, but you got a nice find there. good one.

    M36 Musette bag. I used to own one by the same maker.

    Nice research project.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It just went for 116 euros on Ebay. Geuss some US collector liked it a lot. Not bad for a 4 euro pick up, and a step closer to buying a M36 Feldbluse.
