    Default Signals Satchel no. 2

    Picked this one up yesterday and I was not sure what exactly it is, but following some research I am fairly certain that it is a version of the Satchel Signals No.2, made by Mills Equipment Company (MECo.), it is not dated but has an inspectors mark and number. It has a ZA-13347 stores code which is for signals equipment I think and I found one which had previously sold with all its contents.

    Wireless Set 38, Satchel Signals No2 1942, Headphone (08/11/2012)...

    Condition is a bit worn and stained but still solid and my Father possibly had one of these during his WWII service.

    I tried looking on Karkee web, but they do not appear to cover these.

    Nice find Jerry.Its alot wider than the more common 'Satchel Signals'.I reckon its a battery bag for one of the wireless sets..

    That would make sense as it does not match exactly any of the versions I could find. If you can find the ZA code list link sometime that would probably clear up the issue of its exact function.

    Well I've just had look through 'Equipment of the ww2 Tommy' and there is picture in the of a bag almost exactly the same, different ZA code and there are straps on the back for attachment for 'L' straps ala small pack.Its for the WS38.It would have held spare battery and junction box and spare valves.
    Is it around the same size as a small pack?

    Prehaps try finding the 'vocabulary of army ordnance stores' manuals?

    It appears to be identical to the one in the link I posted with the same ZA code, except it is not marked on the reverse and is not dated, whilst that in the link is clearly marked on the reverse SATCHEL SIGNAL No.2. and is 1942 dated by the same maker. Size in inches are, 10 wide, 5 thick and 8 high.
