H024689 M31 TROPICAL BREAD BAG. (Brotbeutel 31)

BACKGROUND: The standard issue M31 haversack, commonly referred to as the "breadbag", was based on the M1887 haversack and was adopted by the Wehrmacht as well as a wide variety of uniformed and non-uniformed political and paramilitary organizations in 1931. The main variation in breadbags used by political and para-military personnel as opposed to Wehrmacht personnel was the color. The breadbag was designed to carry rations, eating utensils and other assorted personal items. In late 1940 with the impending German entrance into the North African campaign the standard leather fittings on the M31 breadbag were altered to canvas web fittings for longer wear in the tropical climate.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Olive drab, water repellent, canvas bag with olive drab canvas web fittings. All complete straps and buttons. Maker marked and dated for 1942. Nice!
