    Belgian Back Pack? Food related?

    Post by Antarmike on Mon Mar 06, 2017 9:05 pm

    Okay folks,what have I just bought 15" tall, 14" wide 9" deep.

    Looks to be very similar to carrier for insulated food flask, (I already have this type of carrier)  and I am assuming from the similarities of design and construction that this has a similar purpose.  Rigid back and base, well padded at the back, with back-pack style straps. Hooks at bottom ends as per flask carrier.  Can anyon give a positive id. what two items (presumably the same) fit in the two internally divided areas?

    Thanks in advance,  Mike.

    Here is another one from my collection, with a different maker's mark:

    I had never seen the tins for this before - I believed mistakenly that this pack was meant to carry two of the cylindrical flasks.

    Marc, do you know where these tins can be purchased?

    Hi Andrew,

    no I can't say where you can purchase these. At home I only have the carrier, not the tins.
    The photo I Posted is from a visit of the Belgian Army Museum In Soest.
