RAF Evasion & Survival Water Bag

RAF Wartime Survival Water Bag.

Contained within the Air Crew Survival equipment, this green canvas bag was an easy, compact way of keeping a supply of drinking water.
Used in conjunction with the sterilising tablets issued as part of the Escape & Survival (and dinghy) equipment.

The 13 x 8" green canvas bag has two brass eyelets in the top corner for hanging the full bag.

A white cotton printed instruction label is stitched to the side.

On the rear of the bag are found a number of rubber stamp markings, including a 1945 date.

In a very good condition.
