    Default Prewar Polish Airforce Radio Operator Khaki map pouch ? signed K Kirjacki,Crowned Eagle stamp X, Z, one in each wing 1937, Checkerboard Airforce emblem 100% original prewar,please ?

    Hello,

    Could you tell me if this pouch is 100% original prewar, please ?

    It seems to have considerable age and detailed best quality prewar markings that I have seen before.

    The checkerboard Airforce emblem looks considerably old and partly faded.

    The stamp of "K Kirjacki", the same craftsman / maker who made the private purchase prewar Polish FB Radom Vis holster which is in another collectors collection on this forum, also a date of 1937, I think ?

    Here is the holsters link on this forum -

    New Prewar VIS Holster

    The Polish Crowned Eagle with the X ? (usually K) and Z in each wing, I have often seen inside the covers / lids of prewar Polish Army communication equipment (prewar Polish Army field telephone and radio equiptment).

    Could you tell me what it used to be used for, please ?

    Here are its photos.

    I look forward to your opinions, so I can know whether it is an original as I think and hope it is .

    Thank you all for you help, in advance.

    Justin

    I know the Poles used zinc buttons on their field gear, rain cape ( plachta namiotoowa) but did the Poles use wooden toggles?

    Also it appears the checkerboard is missing the outer ring of colors.

    I am interested to hear others observations.
    cheers,

    Could it have been used pre-war to drop messages from open cockpit aircraft...hence a highly visible emblem to help find it on the ground afterwards?
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.
