    Don't know about the bag, but the code on the canvas "tube" looks like a NATO / National Item Identification Number (NIIN) since it is 9 digits long.
    At least that is what I think it is.

    The item it self looks like one of the carrying cases we used in Denmark for officer swords in the 1950s and 1960s.

    How long is it?
    Inches / cm?

    Thanks guys. I thought the bag looked USMCish but not sure. There are some markings...a stamp...but cannot tell what it is. I don't have a USMC reference book because I don't come across much ot it anymore. I've got a lot of the USMCWR items for my daughters but that's about all.

    The tube should be good for something, I guess, regardless of what it was used for. Maybe put some beef jerky in it. LOL

    As usual, THANKS!

    The pack looks like what we used to call a "fanny pack" It was carried below the regular field pack about waistline level. I used to use one of these for search and rescue missions in the late 70's. I can't pin down the era they were issued but they were plentiful at surplus stores back then. Prpbably VietNam but could easily be WWII or Korea also. The tube looks like one for a barrel carrier for a .30 or .50 cal. Browning machine gun barrel, IMO.

    The tubular case has a stylized "Y" on the end, so it's Cold War Yugolsavian- dunno what it held.

    can't add any more than's been said on the US pack- nice
