I have had this item for years and would like to know what it is. It came with a bunch of WWII items many years ago but has no ID other than the cloth tag. Can anybody help me identify the era and application? Thanks,

*mod edit to change spelling. Not that it's a biggie* ;)

I've not handled anything similar in my experience, the zippers to me indicate something stowed and not used readily. Its not the right shape for a main or reserve chute IMO, could equally be immediate postwar as well. Just my two cents :supz:

Please, please, please. it is "Sydney NSW" not Sidney as in the person.
No need for the spelling police please.
Cheers and Beers.

And a little note, as some may not be familiar with it - 'Pty. Ltd.' is common in Australia, and stands for 'Proprietary Limited', similar (but legally distinct to) the familiar 'Ltd.' in the US and UK.

Trivia over, back to regular programming. :D

Thanks all for your input. I had a hunch it was some type of survival kit with all the pouches and zippers. It sure made it a long way from Australia to Baltimore, Maryland!

Sorry for the mis-spelling of Sydney.
