    Thanks Luke, I guess this is the type of pack you were refering to in my previous post ( I did'nt realise there were two types to be honest) But many thanks to you ,for refering me to this cool website Very Happy

    I will keep an eye out for the correct straps to go with my packs Wink

    Who is the Mfr. of the pack? I have some BATA valise straps that match the canvas on yours...somewhere around here, that is. I will see if I can find them and post them for you. You can have them...no charge.

    Sorry, I found the straps a few days ago and forgot to post them...they are unissued BATA straps and I'm guessing Indian made by the date stamped into one of the buckles(a feature I've noticed on Indian made webbing). BATA had factories in India, Britain, and Canada in the 40's, but the Indian made ones always seem to have dated brass buckles. Also, Indian canvas always seems to be the stripey kind and not a consistent color.

    If you want these you can have them, I have several sets kicking around. Just PM me your addy and I'll fire them off to you.

    From the weave of the webbing looks like an Indian made pack.
