    Any markings or ink stamps on it?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for your time, Gunny.
    I searched the net too and couldn't find it either.
    It's probably a civilian or scouting sack.
    Here are some detail pics.

    Greetings from the Netherlands to you all,

    I have got a rather good news for you. The general apperance and details convinced me that it is a German WWII rucksack, but I couldn't find a clear answer. I searched some books and I have found a definite answer - the same model is presented on page 135 of Jacques Scipion and Yves Bastien book "Afrikakorps. Tropical uniforms of the German Army 1940 - 1945." Seems to be rather the late war example, maybe designed for Gebirgsjaegers.

    Looks like a rather early piece with the aluminium hardware, and normal buckles (with straps with holes)
