    In my judgement yes its fine, just a bit crudely done. Here is my one for comparison.

    I've always wondered what the '2' on the front refers to, I've seen it on a few over the years. My example is an MECo version:

    Hi Ed,

    I think your example was made by M. & Co. rather than M.E.Co, not that it really matters.

    I always wondered what year this style of shell dressing bag was introduced since I had never seen an example with a date earlier than 1942. Then I came across the following pictures on a militaria site, which show that they were around as early as 1939.
