    Original 1917 Dated British Army 'Case Map MK 1A'

    Item details

    An original 1917 dated British Army map case MK 1A made by 'Haughton Butcher'. 

    This pattern of case was used during the Great War by a variety of different units. The main body of the case is made from wood which features a bi-folding design which functions via brass hinges. The outside edges feature a metal trim and there are small metal latches which hold the case together when folded in half. There is a metal hanging chain to each side and the front features a rubberised cotton document wallet which is trimmed in leather and fastens on a metal stud. A leather carry handle is present to the rear and there are also two leather tabs and metal buckles to which a shoulder strap could be attached. 

    The maker's name and date are stamped into the wood. Interestingly they clearly had a universal maker stamp which was missing the last number of the date, hence why the number 7 is slightly different to the rest of the date. There is also a War Department broad arrow marking to one the pieces of metalwork.   

    The map case is a small to medium size and is designed to be easily portable. It measures  12" x 15" when closed and 24" x 15" when opened. 

    The case is in good condition for its age and it displays well. There is no serious damage and overall it is a very good example. 

    A nice original Great War item which would make a great addition to a collection!
