Air Ministry Registry Canvas Bag

And now for something completely different! This bag is made of the same heavy green canvas used to manufacture those desirable WW11 RAF navigators bags which are now so sort after. Both the front and back panels have heavy brass eyelets inserted and with clear stencil writing to the front panel ‘Please return quickly to Air Ministry Registry Whitehall’. We can only assume this was a document bag used in the same manner as postal services bags for transporting important Air Ministry related documents to and from overseas postings. If any visitors to the site can help with a more accurate description and original usage please drop us a line and we can add to the listing. The bag is in exceptional condition and whilst not dated we are assuming it dates to WW11 or perhaps early post war. This is the only example we have ever seen and would seem to be a scarce example of RAF memorabilia. Measures 19” x16” (48 cm x 40 cm)
