    ISAF Canadian duffle bag

    It s a duffle bag from 2 MP. You can read the service number, rank, name, unity, Operation Athena and ISAF

    From wikipedia:" 2MPU is one of four Army MPU's primarily responsible for force generation of Military Police personnel for Expeditionary Operations, which includes the War on Terror in Afghanistan. When deployed, members of 2 MPU are tasked to the Joint Task Force Afghanistan Military Police Company (JTF-Afg MP Coy). Military Police (MP) tasks have varied greatly over successive rotations. Canadian Forces members who serve in Afghanistan are awarded the General Campaign Star (GCS). 2 MPU was the main force generator for TF 3-08 which deployed in the fall of 2008. 2 MPU is the main force generator for Task Force 1-10 which will deploy in 2010."

    A challenge coin is a small coin or medallion (usually military), bearing an organization’s insignia or emblem and carried by the organization’s members. They are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale.[1]

    Is the bag made of cotton duck or codura nylon?
    The one I was issued in 1979 was cotton duck. The bag is virtually unchanged since 1964, the tie tapes for the handles are new.
