Unusual combination of a mounted 90 round bandolier made in South Australia, yet marked up to the Canadian Field Artillery.

The Canadian Field Artillery and Garrison Artillery were redesignated The Royal Canadian Artillery in 1935.

This example is not apparently dated though is of Great War origin, with tinned rivet construction throughout.

Unfortunately the condition is rather poor throughout, with overall cracking to the leather from use and poor storage. One of the pocket lids has suffered rather badly, whilst the leather is not split, it is very thin and can be secured only with care. Other pockets have cracking, particularly to the farthest pocket as pictured.

The name "F. G. Nelson" has been inked or painted to the inside.

Whilst not an example in excellent condition, this is a good honest Great War mounted bandolier with an interesting unit mark.
