    Is it a resi bag? it looks a bit small and with there being bits on both sides my initial thought is Supplementary Pouches - the flap looks a bit boxed too with side panels, its just a thought, I'm struggling to pick out detail to be clear exactly what it is

    Yes, I wasn't certain, but it looked more canvas than webbing and the flap looked large....There is the other one to take into account of course which suggests you may be right. If so, then it means that at least one set of 1940 Supplementaries avoided the direct journey from long-term storage to post-war surplus:)

    Holland, Belgium or France 1940. Can any one ID the area these colour slides were taken. Does not look like Holland. Not a lot to go on.

    Could this be Chem. du Halage, Tournai, looking east from the west bank of the Scheldt?
