    Default Very Odd Double C-/l\ Marking

    Morning gents I have come upon a 41 dated gas mask bag and mask for sale but what caught my eye was the double C-/l\ stamp on the bag and as I have never seen this done in this configuration before I thought it may be worthy of some further discussion has any one else ever seen any field gear that bares this particular type of double stamp?

    Regards Mark

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Two Broad Arrows point to point usually means the item is to disposed of as surplus. In this case, I am not sure.....

    That is how I think of this marking, but not seen it quite like this before.

    I have never seen this configuration before and the broad arrows look quite odd to me for Canadian.

    The Members here are correct, 2 Broad Arrows point to point mean that the item was sold off as surplus, however I have never seen one done like that before.
    Hope you bought it, for the mark if nothing else.

    Gentlemen I have seen the arrow to arrow mark before but never in this configuration with the C broad arrow found it rather unusual.
    Not yet Dean it is on E-bay couple hours to go yet just wanted a little input from the membership before I throw a bid at it.

    Hey Mark,

    I have seen this stamp before on Canadian waterbottle carriers as well as a Canadian officer's valise that I used to own...

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Michael I am assuming then this must be the Canadian variation of the surplus mark as seen on surplus items from other commonwealth countries.
