    Hi was working around this house in London and they guy was clearing out his loft and putting boxes next to the bins.An old guy came past and started to rummage in a box of magazines and took a couple and walked off.I went and had a lookand they were 1970s mags called gun quite interesing but didnt have too much time to read as i get paid per job and that was my first of the day.When i was clearing up the guy came from the house for a chat i commented on the magazines and he said take them if you want there were approx 200 of them so i said ok but im really more into ww2 things.He said you would of loved it yesterday i had loads of ww2 magazines skirmish and images of war they went in about half hour.He said tell you what ive got thats going to be chucked away and ready to go and went to get two boxes and he didnt want anything for them!!!! He said youve saved them from the bin mate i was gobsmacked to say the least.Would love to know what the tan sling is off no markings im afraid.

    The tan strap is commonly used on the Thompson sub machine gun (if it's the strap I think you're talking about!)

    The middle canteen looks like it has it's cup inside the cover, but what is hiding in the left hand cover? It looks like a smaller canteen of some sort that was just put in an empty cover. William
