    It is most definitely a reserve chute worn on the front- I mean the pack for a reserve, as the suspension lines and chute have been cut away. It was probably left intact by the paratrooper after a successful landing with his main chute and someone took advantage of the lines and canopy. At some time, I venture to wager, there were lots of these strewn around Holland.

    Yeah Reserve Chute.
    The two clips fasten to two D Rings on the front of the harnes, The Px4 British Chute I used when I first joined is very similar as was the old type reserve.
    The top set of D rings for the reserve and the lower D Rings for the hooks attatched to your container.

    Regards
