Rucksack find - Wehrmacht WW2 ?
Picked up a Rucksack and Brotbag at the fleamarket last weekend. I first thought the rucksack was Wehrmacht WW2. Looking at it at home I'm not so sure - the only mark I found is 88 on the inside, nothing on the straps, hooks, rings, I thought style and material maybe German WW2. What do members think ? Any information welcome.

It's always tough to make a definitive comment on such an item.
All i can say so far is that it does not correspond to any known WW2 production for the german army.
