C021962 CANADIAN MAP/DISPATCH CASE. A tan/khaki webbed canvas case, approximately 24cm" x 34cm, whose top fold-over flap covers the entire forward surface of the case. Two brass snaps are to the base of this forward flap, which mate with brass studs to a narrow horizontal flap proceeding from the base reverse. The same setup is duplicated on the other side. To the top reverse are two extended tabs with brass buckles sewn to the ends of each. The main body of the case is comprised of a yellowed piece of celluloid reinforced along its edge with webbing, which expands, accordion-like, from the back of the case. Inserted into the opened top is a stiff brown panel which serves as the shape-retaining backing. Complete with original leather shoulder strap. Maker marked to "Hugh Carson Co. Ltd 1940" and "C - broad arrow" marked. Scarce. Nice example.
