    Can anyone ID this British carrier? Aside the from the purple and green painted markings, someone has written "US KIT" in ball point pen under the flap.

    This canteen carrier is a mystery - it is not a US-made item, but neither does it appear to be commercial. The canteen itself is a normal US example (1944), and the set has been together apparently for a long time.

    My best guesses are Norwegian, or possibly French or South Korean - any other ideas?

    It turns out that the roll stamped 225489 is for wash/shaving kit. I have seen them identified as 1944 pattern wash rolls or jungle wash rolls. I am not sure yet of the correct nomenclature. According to one site, this roll was designed such that it could be worn around the waist.

    THANK YOU!!!

    You've just made sense of this item for me. It never made sense to me why the strap was so long on one side!

    I had one in the 1970s complete with a 8 figure number in the same font. It had a separate smaller pouch made from the same fabric: I took this to be for a KFS.
