Hello charlieboy :D; really nope. The caption of the picture did not mention it. I presume it could be some kind of ration bag or something like that. Those guys belonged to a British sanitary unit. Cheers. Raúl M 8).

Summer of 1942, so far so good. Three young soldiers of the 94 ID having a nice time on the train. Later all changed for worse.
