BRITISH SNOW CAMOUFLAGE BAGS
The following photos show a great view of a military item which was never used. These bags were made in Great Britain for the invasion of Norway, but the invasion never took place. The Germans in Norway surrendered May 8, 1945. I have seen three different manufacturers J.Y. Ltd, M.S. Ltd and Northern Proofing Co. (garments) Ltd. The bag's all are marked with the production year, the British "Broad Arrow" and the manufacturer's name.
The bags are made of white cotton, brass fittings for the carrying handle and a rope and toggle closure. It will take both the Model of 1921/28 and M1, with a XX magazine attached. This versatile case can carry the TSMG with or without the stock attached. The case has two different closure points to allow this feature. The case is also made to take either a horizontal forearm or a vertical grip. They are of good quality, 10" x 35".
There were also made in the Snow Camo for the British BREN gun, but the cases are of coarse longer.
One unanswered question is why several bags made by the M.S. Ltd are marked with a 1943 and 1944 year markings. Perhaps someone of our association can answer this question.
CASES WILL CARRY BOTH 21/28's AND M1
