U.S Army Issue Adjutant’s Leather Dispatch Case Circa 1918

This is a remnant of the U.S. Army of the Great War, now 100 years past. With adjustable shoulder strap and closure, solid brass fittings , this case, in full grain leather, was a U.S. Army issue for field grade officers’ adjutants and aids-de-camp, for the secure conveyance of orders between commanders and the safekeeping of maps and documents in harsh weather conditions and other hardly imaginable challenges.

A faint U.S. Can be seen imprinted in the leather of the centre strap to the front.

Apart from being a exceptional souvenir of its time and place, a trophy for display and conversation piece,

Condition: entirely original and in reasonable condition for the age and what it’s been through, one strap buckle missing. Leather firm but pliable, in worn condition, some damaged areas to bag and strap. Dimensions: 13” x 13” x 3.5”   Very few examples of this article have survived a full century, and fewer still, complete even if a bit damaged.
