About this item
A cylindrical cotton canvas, khaki bag designed to hold three, forty seven round drum magazines for the Lewis machine gun.
The Carrier has two brass swivel fasteners for closing the bag and a carrying strap, in this case shortened to allow for the bag to be carried individually, but originally with claw buckle to allow it to be attached to a second carrier. This modification was very common.
Stencilled to the outside of the carrier is text which reads 'CARRIER MAGAZINES .303IN. LEWIS GUN. The inside upper lip of the bag is marked MJC Ltd. 1916.
Overall condition is very good.
