    Default Cloth pouch from Normandy discovered in the 1980's

    This pouch was a ground find in Normandy about 25 years ago now. It was discovered folded in half in sandy soil near "Utah" beach. The condition is still good, but the outer material is very thin and threadbare. It was found in German positions. Maybe a pouch for keeping a dog tag or even a small mirror? The lining is a pale pink fluffy woolen material which helps pad it out.

    Cheers, Ade.
