    Hello,
    Yes it's genuine and a model 34 Tornister I think. Nice to see the mess tin pouch still attached ( these get un-stitched & taken out as they are quite rare and saleable in their own right! ) Looks good to me as it is - maybe another strap set may turn up - stranger things have happened!

    Hi Danmark
    Thanks so much for the detail information.Is that possible to fix the missing shoulder strap?Or just left it alone as a relic souvenir?

    Hello,
    It is late produced M34 Tornister.
    Danmark is right concerning the messkit bag...nice to see it still attached to the Tornister, as some have been sold separatly as DAK messkits bags....
    Any markings on the remaining strap...?
    someday a matching pair of late straps will come out...for sure...and it worths to fix it as this "no fur" variant is brand new and not so common (no fur M39 Tornister was also made and is more common)
    Thanks

    The straps in this type of backpack ( m34 and m39 ) are removable so you can fix the backpack as fast as you find pair of straps which will fit to backpack.

    as said,it doesn't look damaged, just incomplete. You may want to find a pair of long straps or even a pair of hooks. They're not that hard to come as spares. Nice rucksack by the way!

    Thanks everyone,I took some more pix.There is one faint marker on the strap but I can't make it.There are also some markers like "D&C" & "JCL", "EH" on the hooks.

    Thanks for letting me know the straps are removable,it did work.It's really a good news for me.
