    Default Bag, american? Date and purpose please.

    Hi,
    Picked up this bag the other day. Purportedly it came from the estate of a 'British officer who served in Germany' and used for shotgun cartridges.
    I think it is american and ww1 or earlier. The canvas was a green colour used up to the 1920s, the inside is blue-grey, and its stamped "citadel workshops, dept of stores (can't read the rest).
    Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks.

    The stamp should read "citadel workshops, dept of stores Egyptian Army" and perhaps also have a date such as 1916 on it somewhere. I believe that this is a WWI Egyptian Army document dispatch case.
