Took about 2 years but I now have a waterbag with the same date and markings. Used condition, but not much used is how I would describe its condition.
I have it soaking in a bucket of water so I can use it Sunday.
-2 deg tonight, i. wonder if the adf had hotwater bottles :)

I ended up finding one of the vehicle water bags and have used it a few times. It's definitely best suited to use on a Series Land Rover brush bar than on a Perentie one. The leather straps aren't long enough to fit around the Perentie brush bar barwork

Another nice water bag I picked up is this 1996-dated issue verandah style bag which holds around 15 litres. Hang it up from a branch of shady desert oak or from the frame of an 11x11 with the sides rolled up for a cool drink of water in the heat without having to open the Engel.
