Hi,

Does anyone recognize this haversack as being for a British Equipment Pattern? I has an inside division forming 2 compartments,

a double button front closure and back compartment with single button closure. I see not markings on it beside what is writing on the

front (Royal Flying Corps).

Regards, Michel

Hi

its a variation of the 03 haversack with the rear compartment for the plate, the front flap having the two button holes. The front has a button to fasten it although there are variations with a brass stud.

regards

Dave

Nice example! Love the RFC unit markings. Mine has similar "graffiti" on it and I was dubious of it, yours gives me a bit more faith! Does your haversack have the emergency ration pouch?
