    Is that a NATO Stock Number stenciled on the inside? If so, what is the full number?

    I'm sorry Ed, these are not my pictures. They came from an eBay listing from the Netherlands.

    Netherlands makes perfect sense to me. Ed, I was thinking the the same thing (partial NSN). Going on that assumption, I can't see the first 3 numbers and just the edge of the 4th number, then a 7-707-2566.

    The country code for the Netherlands is 17 which would be the 4th number and the 5th. I think the partially missing number could well be a 1 but then again, what the heck do I know.

    Best thing to do is contact the seller and ask what the whole number is. IMO, a re-purposed surplus Canadian bag of some sort.

    I doubt it was an 'officer's bag' though, as stated in the title...
