British army officers airborne map case.
This model of map case can be seen on many photographs of Officers who took part in Operation Market Garden September 1944. The British 1st Airborne division landed in Arhnem Holland and maps were important as the landed many miles away and had to navigate about 9 miles though open country and many villages until finally reaching the town of Arhnem were vicious street fighting took place.
The map case is similar to the WW1 officers map case that were bought from military outfitters. The official issue 1937 map case was large and very stiff which could get in the way when jumping from a plane. So many Officers would have bought there own like this one which packs up small, is soft and can be stuffed inside your jump smock.
