    Here you are Vedran please only use the forums image up loader or the images can be lost and make the thread useless for future reference.
    As to the pack IMO it is a good M39 Tornister or other wise known as an (Affe) in the German Army. These were manufactured in two different variations one was set up with hooks and leather tabs on the back this was to be used in conjunction with the Y-straps.
    The other variation which is the one you have posted came with straps that were attached internally.
    Any chance on seeing some images of the inside of the pack and its compartments ?

    Upon further inspection of the images there is one thing I do find a little odd the stitching on the lower leather back pad looks to possibly have been hand sewn or repaired as the stitching looks a little uneven I can not enlarge the images though so it is difficult to tell for shur.

    Hello,
    considering the lack of front hooks, i hope that this one is cheap...most likely used postwar by a civilian...
    Thanks
