    I would say a bottle of wine, or a good bottle cognac.

    Sorry my fault I have not given any scale, I don't think so, the web strap is heavy duty inch and a half thick it is roughly 40cm high by 155mm diameter, so I'm thinking shell? If not I wouldn't mind a bottle that size!

    Hi Jock,

    Going on the measurements given, and the fact that there are known pictures of similar types to this in use, I would say that you are chasing along the right lines mate.
    Whether it is WW1 or 2 and for use by a man or horse/mule is a matter of conjecture though.
    Regards etc
