Description

ROLL- WWI INDIVIDUAL ISSUE: LINEN, 19″ WIDE X 16″ HIGH WHEN FLAP IS CLOSED (HAS TWO BUTTONS FOR CLOSURE). I WAS TOLD WHEN WE BOUGHT IT IN FRANCE IN 1986 THAT IT WAS USED FOR PERSONAL ITEMS OF CLOTHING IN THE PACK. STENCILED ON THE FLAP IS “WEU..IER/ 51/ GROUPE/ TU” AS BEST I CAN MAKE OUT. I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE GERMAN BUT IT CAME WITH A LARGE LOT OF WWI FRENCH MATERIAL. THE HEAVY LINEN AND TYPE OF BUTTONS IS USUALLY FRENCH. VG-EXC WITH SOME STITCH REPAIRS. INSIDE IS A LINEN TOWEL (CAME WITH IT) THAT IS WELL USED (HOLES FROM USE) WITH A FAINT FRENCH DEPOT MARK AND A FOLDING TRENCH LANTERN CASE(MALE END PULL OUT W/FABRIC AT SPOT MISSING – ONLY FAIR). LOT
