Information

Austrian Federal Police Large Alpine Rucksack. Duck canvas and beautiful brown leather bottom and straps. Issued during late 40’s early 50’s to Austrian police troops by France in the French sector of Austria. Austrians were not allowed to have an army, but US, UK, France and the Austrians themselves were afraid of a Russian takeover so they equipped and fielded Austrian “Federal Police” troops to counter the Soviet threat.
