    I am not sure about this rucksack and think it was probably made by a wartime manufacturer postwar but it has no label and possibly an ink stamping.

    Its a really nice rucksack though, any thoughts ?

    Looks neat, i would definitely get it if I were you, especially if the price is right.

    Looks neat! If that brace in the second picture is integrally attached to the pack, then I would say that it is a wartime example, as that economy pattern was only produced during the war (as far as I know)...

    Here is a few more pictures of some details. The straps are integral and part of the original manufacture.

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for the additional pictures! I would say that your pack was manufactured between 1943-1945. Either that or it was made up post war with surplus wartime economy braces...

    I think it's a great pack overall!
