    Thanks matey.... yes probably but in looking at dozens of photos i haven't seen the same variety - a M31 but with one central pocket?

    Well over on the WAF I have seen these described as a "kleine Gebirgsjäger Rucksack" like the Arty Rucksack but with a leather trimmed fkap and extra leather loops. The 3 pocket sacks sre called "Grosse Gebirgs Rucksack"

    I don't think it's an artillery pack , I believe they were carried by Y-straps .

    I think the earlier ones used straps.

    Yea, I believe so. There are actually a lot of differences on second look. It looks like an M31 with one pocket.

    Thanks fellas. I'm still leaning towards a GB pack, though. We have some experts, must be on Summer holidays......
