I bought this and don't know what it is. Can anyone tell me? I've been looking on the internet and can't find it.

I don't believe it's that old ie. WW2/korean, more like Viet Nam era. as to what it held? could have been a variety of things, genetic bags like that, or in "milspeak", they are called case, could have been used for anything from equipment used by a soldier/ vehicle all the way up to something that was used on a weapon system/platform, and anything in-between.

bags like those are not ID for anything particular, if there is any ink stamp left or is still readable, it would be on the inside flap and say CASE and a part number, that part number wouldn't be for the equipment it once held, but for the bag

in any event it would make a nice range bag or a bag to hold a lot of loose pieces and parts for a gun, or for anything you can thing of putting in there, you're only limited by your imagination :D

Are there loops inside could be a shot shell pouch. Is it an unmarked washed out gas mask bag ? Odd strap with the Lift dots?

We need more pics. Size is important, how big is that bag.

It measures 12x6x4. There are no markings and no loops on inside. There is however a snap at bottom that looks like it could be for something the size of a cleaning kit.

Those metal ends on the straps remind me of British Equipment, not American. I wonder if that could be a British WW II meat can pouch?
Here is some WW I British web gear shown in this photo:

The lift-the-dot ( LTD) fastener dates around 1917-1956 in the US. Looks like a combination of British & American strap technology.

you probably are right, of all the bags I have ever seen in my 20 years in the Army, I never seen metal tabs like that. they are all rounded

I never ever saw that type of fixture on any British web gear.
It was either round snap if small or "interrupted buckles" if large.

It is odd, but similar straps (Lift dot and metal end) are found on Australian Modified M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment ?
