    Default British 1940 dated rifle bucket ?

    I picked this up at the Brecon Militaria fair recently. It looks like some kind of rifle bucket either for a horse or a motorcycle . It is maker marked Cliff , Walsall and dated 1940. It is 73 cm long and 25 cm wide at the top , it has an open bottom end with a 9 cm wide opening. Does anyone know exactly what this is ?

    It appears that the stitching across the bottom has come undone or been unpicked and that it was not originally open at that end?

    Hard to see how it was attached to anything from these pics. Not seen one before so I can't really help except pass observations from what I can see in the photo's provided.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    It's a saw case for protecting a hand saw. This is my example https://hatchfive.wordpress.com/2015...rmy-saw-cover/
