Double Jerry Can Holder Leather Straps

Post by JohnB » Sun Sep 19, 2021 1:49 pm

Hello All, I picked this up today wondering if anybody can help me identify it? It seems to be a double Jerry Can Holder dated 1945 Jeff QMD. Seems that it might go on an armored vehicle? Or a mule? I have no idea. Please help. Thanks in advance.
