- That is a swedish ww2 mapecase. You can see the crown stamp on the inside of the lid. That was used pre-war and up til 1943 then we got the three crown markings.

- Hi there - this is not British. It is a Swedish map case, made before 1942 when they changed from the single crown stamp to three crowns stamp on their equipment.

- I'm not sure without looking at it in more detail but this looks like a WW2 Swedish army item, the crown stamp is not a George VI crown so pretty sure it's not British army. Nice example though. British army officers / despatch riders map cases were similar but of all canvas with a 3/4 in webbing strap, no leather.
