    Default Patt 37 Small Pack?

    Picked up this tattered old bag this past weekend, while searching for new treasures. Best I can determine itís a British Patt 37 small pack bag but not 100% certain as Iíve not found an example that is an exact match. Seems this bag is missing the two straps sewn on the top back of all the other examples if the small pack bag I have found. Does not appear to have ever been on this bag, no stitching marks, difference in color etc. There are some markings on the shoulder strap but no longer legible. Also, the markings on the inside cover flap are all but faded away.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Russ, yes, that is a Haversack, Web Equipment Patt. 37 or "Small Pack". The straps have been removed.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for chiming in Ade and confirming for me. Have you ever seen or heard of any examples made with out those two straps, that appear missing on this pack? I've looked, once, twice and a third time and I find absolutly no indication that those two straps were ever in place on this pack.

    Yes, these often got removed when people used them as side packs. It was most likely done a very long time ago and now with wear, washing and overall fading will be very hard to see where they once sat.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks again Ade, I'll go with that story...... Not sure what we are going to do with this thing, the kid HAD TO HAVE IT! Maybe I'll try and hunt down the various contents for it as set it up for his display.

    The contents are fairly easy to find. The main two items being the water bottle (in the web carrier) and the mess tin & knife, fork, spoon.

    Cheers, Ade.
