Army Surplus Backpack

I got one of these in the post yesterday

It is a really solid bit of kit - heavy canvas with a leather bottom and leather straps. It has been used and the leather is a little stiff (it belonged to Franz Schuler according to the tag) but a little work will sort that out.
I got it from E-bay but whilst I was looking for a picture (they are often referred to as Salt and Pepper packs) I found this site which has quite a few nice bits of surplus gear.
