    Mark, I am putting my blanket to one side for now as I am planing to buy a 1919 pattern large pack on Bounty day (provided its still there!) and then I will be rolling it and wrapping it around the pack like this:

    I've found the old blanket my wife used for her horse/pony whatever. It has all four corners cut which I can only imagine means it's been decommissioned or something. Apart from that there are no markings or stamps on it whatsoever. It's only the fact that it came straight from an army store and that it's very rough to touch that point to it being an old army blanket.

    Yes do show it if you get the pack.
