: : : : : fan. By any chance does anyone know what kind of leather strap was
: : : : : used on the Mark-VII satchel? I would like to get one just like it,
: : : : : or as close as possible. Have any of you talked to Burmans and Nathan
: : : : : in London concerning this? I really need to know, because I have my
: : : : : satchel coming in the mail in a few days.

: : : : he said, "Excuse me? I have NEVER been the official supplier to any

: : : : by the Universe. "They were two years in the making and ten minutes
: : : : in the destroying" Somme, 1st July 1916. So, can any of you guys help
: : : : with info on the satchel strap. Look, I'll go out and buy a purse if I
: : : : have to just to het an adjustable strap. I swear!!! :)

: : : Dale, do you have a shoe repair shop in your area? You'll find that most shoe repairman are old hands at this thing, and have the equipment to make exactly what you need. I have one in my town who has made and exact duplicate of the strap and attached it to my Mark VII bag after just seeing a picture of it in one of my books. Only charged me 3 bucks, buckle and all. Check close to home. You probably have an expert right there in your backyard. I did. Regards. Michaelson
: Dale: No need to be to desparate! email me. We'll see if I can get you taken care of. I had something on my computer that looked like your header, but the message was scrambled. (@#$%@ University equipment!) Try again. I'll be glad to try and help. Regards. Michaelson
What colour is the satchel strap?. In stills I have from Raiders it looks dark brown (slightly lighter than the jacket) but in stills from Temple of Doom (rope bridge sequence) it looks like black leather.
