Bag, BG-131, for E-11 Signal Lamp Equipment
Genuine WWII US Army BG-131 cavans bag, intended for carrying the SE-11 Signal Lamp Equipment -- not included here --, issued to Parachute Infantry Regiments (one per Rifle Company on D-Day) as stated in TO/E 7-37. This type, which was also used by Navy Beach Battalions during the Normandy Campaign, could either be carried as a rifle, thanks to the M-341 gunstock, or mounted on a tripod -- in this case, remote control was possible by linking the M-227 signal lamp to the J-51 manipulator via the CD-701 wire.
Good overall condition; complete with strap.
