British Bergen Rucksack – Dated 1942
Original WW2 early tan example of the British Army Bergen Rucksack. These backpacks came into issue with the British Army in 1941 and saw use with the Commandos as well as the SAS amongst others. This example is the earlier tan colour used up until the green version superseded it in 1944. This original early bergen is dated 1942. This pattern saw use throughout the entire war. The top of the flap houses a functional brass zip which opens an integral pocket for maps. This example features the standard metal frame in black which is attached to the canvas body of the bag with leather tabs which all appear to be intact. All webbing straps are present. Only one small damage, see last photo.
