Picked up a Gebirgsjäger Rucksack at the weekend. In the rucksack's back pocket were two straps, at first I thought they were for holding the zeltbahn to the rucksack, but they are miles to long. In the picture looking at the top strap - measures 75cm x 20mm, I'm not sure its pre 1945 ? the buckles and clips look to be from another era. The leather strap is marked XE6 Augsburg.
The bottom measures 90cm X 18mm I've no doubt it pre 1945 buckle marked DRGM and has the Assman A mark. Strap marked - Fabrikat -F.W. Kinkel - Mainz Wallstr.17 both clip & buckle fronts have dimpled effect, similar to buckles & clips used on dagger gehänge. Any information appreciated. Unidentified Straps
