Hi, there, I really could use some of the boards input regarding the Indy shoulder bag.
I have a line on a possible Indy bag in unissued shape from a collector here in the U.S. The problem is that I'm unsure that the bag in question is an authentic Mark VII. The bag was described as a WW2 British gas mask bag, green canvas, dated 1945. Sounds good, I know, but when I emailed back for the written contents of the bag it said this: Light 11 J.H.& Co (W) LTD 3/1945. All of the other bags I've heard of have had at least the VII marked in the bag. Is this really a Mark VII or were there other gas mask bags produced by the British at this time? Does anyone else have the bag with similiar markings, or are all your bags labelled Mark VII? Any help would sure be appreciated.
