Hello, the other day I picked up a few items from an estate sale. One of them was this M 2 ammuniton bag. When I got home I did some research and found that this was not government issue during the war becuase it has straps and flaps instead of the neck hole. I read that they made a strap version during the war in Vietnam but this item came from the home of a World War Two veteran. Maybe its a wartime modification? I do not know if he picked this item from somewhere
or if he brought it back home from the military. Any information is greatly appreciated! By the way, the first photo is from online only to show the difference between this bag and the common one.
P.S., sorry for the picture quality- I could only use my laptop's camera.
