Werem,

The bag that is shown in the photograph you have posted is not one of the rubberised Corps of Engineers Bag. The photograph depicts medical personnel of the 4th Infantry Division on Utah Beach, and the Bag that is shown is actually based on a Navy model and was idiosyncratic to the 4th on D-Day. You can read more about this unique piece on our Forum in the following thread:

I hope that the above will provide some useful insight.

Kind regards,
Ben.
