    Found a stamp in it. The maker is unreadable for me, only I can see 1943.

    Well, it would not be the first time that I was totally wrong but I don't think this has anything to do with the rifle at all.

    I am not sure in which area of the kit it belongs but I think this is a component of horse "tack". Not cavalry but horse drawn artillery or transport. It looks to me like a support padding item that would sit between the horses body and whatever load. That is where I would look unless anyone else has a more specific answer?

    I know a little about cavalry gear but virtually nothing about the artillery / transport stuff but this just "looks" right to me. If I find any info I will post it here.

    Regards

    Mark
