NSN 8465-66-014-2482 Bag, Water, Carrying
« on: February 14, 2017, 05:04:41 PM »
Spotted an army issue flax water bag on the Bay of E and since I have too many flax water bags as it is, I thought I'd share the love - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Military-Water-Bag-/132092914362

Looks to me to be 60s or 70s era and would go perfect on the brush bar of a Series II/IIa or Series III LR I reckon.

NSN lookup for 8465-66-014-2482 says it's a "Bag, Water, Carrying"

Sorry guys,

My other flax bags are civilian ones, suited for hand-carry swagman style so are not technically correct for an Army Series Landy.

If you want something "close but not quite", Trailblazer still makes a 3.5 litre bag which is about the right shape and size as the one at the link - http://www.wellingtonsurplus.com.au/showProduct/camping-equipment/water-carriers/WB0028/Trailblazer-Water-Bag-%96-28cm-3.5-Litre-%96-Model-1WB28. Unfortunately it's not flax canvas but is No. 1 duck cotton canvas and made in India. The duck canvas works about as well, and when they're both covered in dust you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the Indian Trailblazer one and the ridgey didge vintage issue one apart from the rope hanging off the proper one. If you wanted to convert a Trailblazer one for display, you'd need to make up some leather hanging straps with Lift The Dot fasteners, then dye the canvas in tea leaves or coffee grounds to get that raw flax colour, then apply the broadarrow, NSN, a manufacturer's name and a date with a small stencil and some black stencil ink to the blank rear side of the bag.

Yeah Boys,

dont be too focused on the Dand D arrow , I have a few pic`s of LRPV`s from the early 70`s with water bags hanging off them and the water bags have no army markings.   

Oh and no Daryl you wont find these photo`s on any LRPV research Facebook page.  :)

Cheers,

Mick

Here's a screen grab from an episode of "Bush Tucker Man" where Les Hiddins uses one of the issue bags like the one which was on ebay

Mines a SUPEX brand, 8L withe the wire handle, however I might get some leather straps sewn in with 'lift the dot' fasteners to 'army it up' a bit

Thanks for these postings. I purchased a mint one of these bags with the same part number. The hanging straps are white! I am advised it was in the toolbox of an Perentie Ambulance. It is dated 2/91 with Broad Arrow symbol. If this is correct they were used into the Perentie era. Is anyone making repros?
