WW2 US Soldiers Private Purchase Waterproof Kit Bag
I've seen these 'Kit Bags' in a few GI Footlocker groupings, and was never quite sure what they were, but here one comes along with the original box and description. 10 1/2" x 7" drawstring Bag with accompanying card reading:
"69 Cents - Ol' Kit Bag - Designed for men in the service. Practical for civilians too. Pack up your toilet articles in this OL' KIT BAG - water proofed lining, water proof and stain proof outside - and smile, smile, smile. Handy for everything. Every man can use several - for sox. handkerchiefs and those miscellaneous articles that get scattered about. Ideal in camps, for foreign duty, for traveling. H.B. Glover Co., Dubuque, Iowa, makers."
Also hand-written on the card (in post-war ballpoint ink) "maybe Bob brought this home from the army".
