Topic: Unknown Backpack-Need Info


I have a backpack I hope someone can tell me about.
Its marked on the inside of the top flap'Powers & Co. 1941', and US on the outside.
The top flap also has a snap inside and is made to hold a mess kit. The pack is khaki with a solidframe of light metal, app. 1/2 ''round. The straps are padded. It has the bayonet mounton the side, and its for a long '03 type bayo.
It is a top loading pack with a heavy drawstring. The clasps are marked 'Anchor' and 'Pat June 25, 1912'. It has two side pockets, and two front pockets on the body. the lower front has a zipper that is marked 'Anchor". Has a small lift the dot fastened strap in the middle of the waist belt (the small of the back), with a strap to go around the waist.
Any info would be greatly appreciated

Perhaps someone out there has the books that cover all this stuff. I'd like a model number, and it's purpose; mountain, heavy load, etc. I've never seen one in old photos, and don't know anyone yet who has either. Could it be an experimental model?
