    Maybe some sort of courier bag, but does not seem to be ww2 related.
    Cheers.

    I think the solution is in the two buckles. That will tell from wich country it come.
    For me personly I dont think military, or maybe after war. The leather doesn't look thick enough for wartime item.
    Maybe French pre-war?

    Ok, maybe it's way off but it's reminiscent of a bag I saw once in Dublin city. A slightly anxious looking camouflage uniformed man rushing down the street carrying a bag like that. Clearly French and there was a French ship docked in the harbour. I could be wrong but it's a bit of a coincidence. Bear in mind I'm pretty up to speed with miltary equipment so took it all in and followed him for a while.

    We are not in NATO or anything like that so it stood out so I have a vivid memory. Proves nothing of course.
